Retinoic Acid, all trans is the oxidized carboxylic acid form of retinol, known in the dietary context as Vitamin A. Retinal (sc-210778) is the aldehyde form of retinol required by the retina of the eye for light absorption and visual processing. Retinoic acid and the other retinoids are involved in a broad range of biological regulations, mediating differentiation, proliferation, and apoptosis. Binding of Retinoic Acid to the nuclear receptors RAR (retinoic acid receptor) and the RXR (retinoid X receptor) initiate signals for transcription and development. The intimate relationship between retinoids and cell cycle regulation has been implicated in suppression of oncogenic proliferation. Also available in a photoactivatable, caged form (sc-202089).
