Example text

If mineral oil is present with retinal and the amine, the retinal may first form a hemiacetal which then reacts with a variety of amines to form the Schiff base. All-trans retinal also reacts with both the sulfhydryl and amino groups of cysteine or the amino group of tryptophan to form a five-membered thiazolidine ring. The formation of the thiazolidine ring is enhanced if formaldehyde is present. The resulting compound has a red color which is bleached upon exposure to light. This reaction, similar to the bleaching of rhodopsin (the visual pigment in the eye) with light exposure, does not utilize the same amino acid that is used in rhodopsin.

In the dry form the vitamers are more stable than when in solution. Stability in solution can be enhanced by the presence of such antioxidants as α-tocopherol and vitamin A. Although the D vitamins are not soluble in water, they, like the A vitamins, can be made miscible with water through the use of detergents or surfactants. However, because of the vitamins’ vulnerability to oxidation, such solutions are very unstable. This is due to the wide dispersion of the vitamin molecules in water which has oxygen dissolved in it.

Of interest are the observations that these binding proteins, while similar to the binding protein in the serum, are highly specific for the different vitamin A forms. The CRBP is the cellular retinol binding protein (14,600 Da) while CRABP is the cellular retinoic acid binding protein (14,600 Da), CRALBP is the retinal binding protein (33,000 Da), and IRBP is the interphotoreceptor or interstitial retinol binding protein (144,000 Da). The latter is found only in the extracellular space of the retina.
