Functional category : Retinoid metabolism

Name : Retinoid metabolism
Description : Only one peroxisomal enzyme, a retinal reductase, has been related to the retinoid metabolism. In mammals, this enzyme reduces retinal in the absence or presence of the retinoid specific binding protein CRBP(I) into retinol. Its function may prevent high and potentially toxic steady-state concentrations of retinal.
