Description: Mitochondria play an important role in the aging process, mainly by mediating the oxidative status of cells due to deviations in respiratory chain function and modification of redox status, which eventually results in changes in levels of reactive oxygen species (ROS). Mitochondrial targeting is typically accomplished by “decorating” the particles with the TPP+ moiety(ies). The mitochondrially targeted antioxidant 10-(6′-plastoquinonyl)decyltri-phenylphosphonium cation (SkQ1)  is an antioxidant and was developed as such to counteract oxidative damage in mitochondria. It was found to increase the median lifespan of these organisms, and it retarded, arrested, and in some cases even reversed development of many age-related pathological traits.
