Comprehensive in scope and written by leading researchers in the field, The Retinoids Biology, Biochemistry, and Disease will be an essential reference for biologists, biochemists, geneticists and developmental biologists, as well as for clinicians and pharmacists engaged in clinical research involving retinoids.
Divided into five sections, the book covers retinoic acid signaling from biochemical, genetic, developmental, and clinical perspectives
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
The text is divided into five sections, the first of which examines vitamin A metabolic and enzymatic pathways
