Vitamin A or retinol and its metabolites are essential for life processes. Retinal is well known for its role in vision while retinoic acid, through the many genes whose expression it regulates, is important for growth and development, cellular proliferation and differentiation, tissue homeostasis, immune and nervous systems function. Retinol itself could be involved in mitochondrial signaling where it may serve as a co-factor in redox sensing and energy homeostasis. All-trans retinoic acid (atR
