The choroid plexus of the fourth ventricle is conspicuous both in location and size: it protrudes over the outer hindbrain, closely apposed to the caudal external surface of the cerebellum, and it is disproportionately large early on. While the developing cerebellum is known to respond to retinoic acid (RA), it does not express significant levels of RA synthesizing enzyme. Retinaldehyde dehydrogenase levels in the choroid plexus, however, are very high, with maxima during the pre- and postnatal… CONTINUE READING
