We have investigated the regulation of translation during the period of rapid liver growth that occurs at the end of gestation in the rat. This work was based on our prior observation that fetal hepatocyte proliferation is resistant to the inhibitory effects of rapamycin, an inhibitor of the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR), a nutrient-sensing kinase(More)
Background: Vitamin A and its derivatives, the retinoids, are essential for normal embryonic development and maintenance of cell differentiation. β, β-carotene 15,15'-monooxygenase 1 (BCMO1) catalyzes the central cleavage of β-carotene to all-trans retinal and is the key enzyme in the intestinal metabolism of carotenes to vitamin A. However, human and(More)
