Although the number and diversity of target molecules interacting directly with retinol is likely to increase in the coming years, a plausible paradigm is in the making on how serine/threonine kinases are regulated. The essential features of this paradigm will be presented, and the potential effect on redox regulation of cells discussed. Role of Vitamin A in the Immune System Vitamin A was discovered 100 years ago during the course of then popular nutritional studies in animals. Depending on the severity of deprivation, animals displayed symptoms of multiple and progressive organ failure.

Hypothetical distributions of risk in young children with and without treatment with vitamin A. With mortality as a “hard” end point (noted by vertical line) in trials of vitamin A supplementation, a leftward shift in the population distribution of risk in the vitamin A-treated group may explain the reduction in mortality observed in vitamin A supplementation trials. The difference in mortality with and without vitamin A is illustrated by the section of the distribution between the two lines, to the right of the vertical line.
