all-trans-Retinol - CAS 68-26-8

Vitamin A, also known as all-trans retinol, is an intermediate in retinol metabolism in animals. It is metabolized to retinoic acid (Item No. 11017), a ligand for both the retinoic acid receptor (RAR) and the retinoid X receptor (RXR). RAR and RXR heterodimerize and act as ligand-dependent transcriptional regulators, with roles in development, reproduction, immunity, organogenesis, and cancer.
