The incorporation of tritiated retinoic acid into proteins has been studied in cell-free extracts from rat liver and kidney. Incubation with retinoic acid in the presence of ATP and CoA resulted in a CoA intermediate. This CoA intermediate is a substrate for enzymes that incorporate the labeled retinoic acid moiety into proteins (Mr = 14,000-60,000) as detected with SDS-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. In the microsomal fraction, the label was found in a single protein (Mr 30,000). Retinoic… CONTINUE READING
