Nuclear receptors for vitamins A and D belong to the nuclear hormone receptor superfamily and act as ligand-inducible transcription factors. Therefore, most of the biological actions of vitamins A and D are now considered to be exerted through nuclear vitamin receptor-mediated gene expression. The vitamin A nuclear receptors compromise six members, three all-trans retinoic acid receptors (RARalpha, RARbeta, RARgamma) and three 9-cis retinoic acid receptors (RXRalpha, RXRbeta, RXRgamma… CONTINUE READING
