Summary of NQO1

NQO1 is an enzyme that functions as an antioxidant and is important for detoxification (R). This protein enzymatic activity prevents the production of radical species and oxidative stress (R).

NQO1 helps with stresses such as from certain toxins and carcinogens, or by helping break down superoxides and peroxides.  NQO1 directly scavenges superoxide (R). NQO1 is important in activating vitamin K in order to allow it to function well, which allows for blood clotting, bone health and also anti-tumor properties (R).
