In eight chapters, international researchers present recent developments including the introduction of all-trans-retinoic acid (ATRA), a molecular-targeted drug that has revolutionized treatment of a type of leukemia; vitamin A metabolism; current understanding of the role of retinoids in key physiological functions; the role of carotenoids and retinoic acids in prevention/ treatment of diseases including asthma, lung cancer, and macular degeneration; and the evaluation of such compounds by DNA microarray technology.

Another in vitro study found that kinetin, EGCG (a component found in green tea), all-trans-retinoic acid and selenium induced changes in the aging-related proteins moesin, rho guanosine-5'-diphosphate-dissociation inhibitor, and actin, providing a possible mechanism for their role in preventing skin aging (16).
Three isotypes of retinoic acid receptors (RARs: RAR[alpha], RAR[beta] and RAR[gamma]) are receptors for retinoids such as all-trans-retinoic acid (ATRA) (Petkovich et al., 1987; Brand et al., 1988; Krust et al., 1989).
