Although the major tissue site of retinol binding protein (RBP) synthesis in the body is the liver, other sites of synthesis have been reported. The physiological role(s) of circulating RBP that is produced and secreted extrahepatically has not been systematically investigated. To address this question, we used as a model a mouse strain (hRBP(-/-)) that expresses human RBP (hRBP) cDNA under the control of the mouse muscle creatine kinase promoter in an rbp-null background (RBP(-/-)).
