OverviewThe purpose of this book is to present an overview of advances in both retinal and retinoic acid synthetic chemistry and biology. Chapters are written by research workers who are active in these fields. Emphasis is placed on structure-activity relationships. It includes topics of cell differentiation, maintenance of cell morphology, and vision. This reference contains a special section on assays which were developed to measure retinoid activity. This book is ideal for those interested in the fields of photobiology, organic chemistry, biological chemistry, and nutrition.
