Relationship between perinatal appearance of cellular retinol-binding protein, type II and retinal reductase activity in chick liver.

Abstract

To explore a role of the transiently appearing cellular retinol-binding protein, type II (CRBP(II)) in perinatal chick liver, we have examined whether the relationships exist among the perinatal changes in hepatic CRBP(II) protein and mRNA levels, retinal reductase activity and beta-carotene levels in liver and serum. Northern blot analysis for hepatic CRBP… (More)
