What is the Molecular Basis for Vitamin A Uptake & Storage in Vertebrates?

Research Paper Title Molecular Basis for Vitamin A Uptake and Storage in Vertebrates. Abstract The ability to store and distribute vitamin A inside the body is the main evolutionary adaptation that allows vertebrates to maintain retinoid functions during nutritional deficiencies and to acquire new metabolic pathways enabling light-independent production of 11-cis retinoids. These processes greatly… Read More
