Overexpression of cellular retinoic acid-binding protein type II (CRABP-II) and down-regulation of CRABP-I in psoriatic skin.

Cellular retinoic acid-binding proteins (CRABPs) might exert a physiological function by controlling the intracellular levels of free retinoic acid. The aim of this study was to analyze the relative expression of CRABP-I and CRABP-II in lesional (LPS) and nonlesional (NLPS) psoriatic skin. CRABP-I and -II proteins were analyzed by a PAGE-autoradioblotting… (More)
