A quinone is a cyclic organic compound that contains two carbonyl (C=O) groups that are in the same aromatic ring. Quinone cofactors associate with enzymes and participate in electron transfer or catalysis or both. Quinone cofactors may also be formed by posttranslational modification of amino acid residues of proteins.
