Vitamin A may regulate the synthesis or glycosylation of certain epithelial glycoproteins. Experimental vitamin A deficiency has been found to reduce radioactive glucosamine incorporation into certain glycoprotein fragments of a variety of epithelia. The epithelial tissues so affected include the intestinal mucosa,l,2 corneal epithelium,3-5 and tracheal respiratory epithelium.6.7 Administration of vitamin A to the deficient animals restores glucosamine incorporation into the glycoprotein… Expand
