Retinoids are powerful regulators of epithelial differentiation and are essential for its maintenance. Because retinoids are necessary for cervical epithelial differentiation, they have been used as chemopreventive agents of cervical dysplasia and neoplasia. We were interested in determining whether different cervical epithelial phenotypes express specific retinoid receptors. The cervical epithelium contains the two phenotypes, stratified squamous and simple columnar, which join at the… CONTINUE READING
