Would eating carrots protect your liver? A new role involving NKT cells for retinoic acid in hepatitis.

Abstract

Retinoic acid (RA), which is the biologically active form of vitamin A, acts through the nuclear hormone receptor RAR (RA receptor) to induce either gene activation or repression. RA production and its effects have been linked to macrophages, dendritic cells, T and B cells, and iNKT cells in the immune system and play pro- as well as anti-inflammatory roles… (More)
