Vitamin A is stored in the liver. Small amounts of vitamin A are also found in the lungs, intestines, eyes and other areas of the body. Cells responsible for vitamin A storage have long been regarded as a part of the reticuloendothelial cell system (RES) (6, 8), e.g., in the liver, Kupffer cells are thought to be the site of vitamin A storage. However, Nakane (7) first noticed in 1963 by fluorescence microscopy that liver vitamin A was found not in the Kupffer cells but in the "fat-storing cell… CONTINUE READING
