Predicted to have 2-octoprenyl-3-methyl-6-methoxy-1,4-benzoquinone hydroxylase activity and chromatin binding activity. Involved in several processes, including chordate embryonic development; determination of adult lifespan; and mitochondrion morphogenesis. Localizes to the mitochondrion. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in primary coenzyme Q10 deficiency 8. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; ear; nervous system; respiratory system; and skeleton. Orthologous to human COQ7 (coenzyme Q7, hydroxylase).
