What is PQQ Disodium?
Pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ), also called methoxatin, is a redox cofactor. It is found in soil and foods such as kiwifruit, as well as human breast milk. Enzymes containing PQQ are called quinoproteins. Glucose dehydrogenase, one of the quinoproteins, is used as a glucose sensor.

History of PQQ Disodium
PQQ Disodium was discovered by J.G. Hauge as the third redox cofactor after nicotinamide and flavin in bacteria (although he hypothesised that it was naphthoquinone). Anthony and Zatman also found the unknown redox cofactor in alcohol dehydrogenase. In 1979, Salisbury and colleagues as well as Duine and colleagues extracted this prosthetic group from methanol dehydrogenase of methylotrophs and identified its molecular structure. Adachi and colleagues discovered that PQQ was also found in Acetobacter. The scientific journal Nature published a 2003 paper by Kasahara and Kato stating that PQQ was a new vitamin. However in 2005, an article by Anthony and Fenton argued that the 2003 Kasahara and Kato paper drew incorrect and unsubstantiated conclusions.
