Coenzyme Q (CoQ) is essential in cell metabolism and antioxidant protection in organisms. It has been associated with aging progression. Decrease in the levels of CoQ during aging has been suggested in many models and also in humans. Further, the redox ratio between reduced and oxidized form has been also associated with aging in humans. However, their role in aging and longevity is not completely clear. Being an essential component of aerobic metabolism in all the organisms and being a key component in membrane antioxidant system and in cholesterol oxidation protection, maintenance of CoQ levels can be related with longevity and with the progression of aging-related diseases. In this Special Issue we want to highlight the importance of CoQ in longevity and its role in the progression of aging-related diseases. Contributions including reviews about the importance of this essential factor are welcome.
