Co-ordinated induction of beta-carotene cleavage enzyme and retinal reductase in the duodenum of the developing chicks.


The developmental patterns of expression of beta-carotene cleavage enzyme activity were compared with those of retinal reductase and NAD-dependent retinol dehydrogenase activities in chick duodenum during the perinatal period. The beta-carotene cleavage enzyme activity was not detected in the duodenum before hatching, but it increased rapidly during 24 h… (More)
