Quinones and Other Reactive
Oxygen Species in Neurobiologic, Apoptotic, and Neurotoxic Processes
Dr. Smythies: Great presentation. Hope you have fun at the meeting.Just a couple of points of clarification. First what sort of concentrations of these quinones exist in the brain, Do these concentrations suggest that these are merely transition products in the metabolism or terminal products which may need to be eliminated? Second as these compounds would be highly reactive, would it be fair to assume that they are formed where they are used, i.e. their localization should be no different than that of the enzymes utilizing them.
