Mobilephone tradition has advanced to the purpose the place cells could be grown into tissue-like buildings in vitro, yet those tissues usually undergo little resemblance to a similar tissue in a residing organism. This publication describes equipment of culturing epithelial cells with a view to mimic safely their behaviour in vivo, and the ensuing version platforms can be utilized in a variety of examine components: pharmaceutics, pharmacology, toxicology, and cellphone biology.

These studies have provided the ultimate proof that RA (specifically all-trans and 9-cis RA) constitutes the active ingredient of vitamin A and its nuclear receptors are ligand-activated transcription factors responsible for regulating the expression of RA-responsive genes. However, it remains highly challenging to dissect the complex RA signaling pathways because the specificity of the actions of retinoids in different gene systems cannot be accounted for by the actions of the receptors alone.

Toxicol. 2003. 140301 Copyright c 2003 by Annual Reviews. edu Key Words retinoic acid, coactivators, corepressors, gene transcription, chromatin ■ Abstract Retinoids regulate gene transcription by binding to the nuclear receptors, the retinoic acid (RA) receptors (RARs), and the retinoid X receptors (RXRs). RARs and RXRs are ligand-activated transcription factors for the regulation of RAresponsive genes. The actions of RARs and RXRs on gene transcription require a highly coordinated interaction with a large number of coactivators and corepressors.
