Studies on the transport and cellular distribution of vitamin A in normal and vitamin A-deficient rats with special reference to the vitamin A-binding plasma protein

, : Studies on the transport and cellular distribution of vitamin A in normal and vitamin A-deficient rats with special reference to the vitamin A-binding plasma protein. Journal of Biological Chemistry 248(11): 4009-4022

Retinol-binding protein (RBP) and thyroxine-binding prealbumin were isolated from rat serum. Under physiological conditions RBP and prealbumin form a protein complex. Rat RBP had characteristics similar to those seen in man and monkeys, including the association constant to prealbumin (8 X 106 M-1).
