Summary The Retinoids: Biology, Biochemistry, and Disease provides an overview and synthesis of the retinoid molecules, from basic biology to mechanisms of diseases and therapy. The book covers retinoic acid signaling from biochemical, genetic, developmental, and clinical perspectives. The text is divided into five parts, the first of which examines vitamin A metabolic and enzymatic pathways. Focus then shifts to the role of retinoic acid signaling in development, and then to retinoids and physiological function. The book concludes with chapters on retinoids, disease and therapy.
Bibliography Note Includes bibliographical references at the end of each chapters and index.
