In order to prove the hypothesis that humans and animals with adequate vitamin A status do not absorb and metabolize orally administered all-trans retinoyl beta-glucuronide, unlabeled retinoyl glucuronide (0.1 mmol) was orally dosed to fasting well-nourished young men. Neither retinoyl glucuronide nor retinoic acid, a possible metabolite, appeared in the(More)
Retinoic acid (RA) is involved in the development of both the conducting airway and alveolar portions of the lung. RA plays a key role in the induction of the formation of alveolar septa. Retinoyl beta-glucuronide (RAG), an endogenous retinoid, acts like RA, but is much less cytotoxic. We examined the effect of daily intraperitoneal doses of RA and RAG(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the bioavailability and bioconversion to vitamin A of a single oral dose in oil or an aqueous dispersion of labeled beta-carotene in rats of different vitamin A status. Weanling Sprague-Dawley rats were fed a vitamin A-deficient diet and supplemented for 4 wk with 0, 7, 21 and 63 micro g/(rat. d) of retinyl acetate.(More)
