Cellular retinol binding protein II (CRBP II) is a vitamin A-binding protein that is expressed specifically in small intestinal villus absorptive cells. Previous studies have shown that retinoic acid upregulates endogenous human CRBP II gene expression in differentiated Caco-2 cells. To better characterize the regulation of human CRBP II expression, we analyzed the ability of receptor-selective agonists to enhance transcription from the 5'-upstream flanking region of the human CRBP II gene… CONTINUE READING
