Retinol in avian oogenesis: molecular properties of the carrier protein.

Abstract

Normal embryo development in oviparous (egg-laying) species requires the coordinated targeting to growing oocytes of nutrients and regulatory molecules such as retinol, the precursor of active retinoids. Serum retinol-binding protein (RBP) is the major carrier protein for retinol in the circulatory system of vertebrates. In oviparous animals, RBP is thought… (More)
