Example text

In addition to retinol, there is another form that is isolated from fish. It was originally distinguished on the basis of a different maximum spectral absorption and named A2 to differentiate it from the previously isolated form. Vitamin A2 is closely related to vitamin A1 but contains an additional double bond in the β−ionone ring (Fig. 1). Liver oils of marine fish origin usually average less than 10% vitamin A2 of the total vitamin A content. The relative biological activity of vitamin A2 is 40 to 50% that of A1.

Retinol is readily transferred to the egg in birds, but the transfer of retinol across the placenta is marginal, and mammals are born with very low liver stores of vitamin A. , 1990). Excretion Derivatives of vitamin A with an intact carbon chain are generally excreted in feces, whereas acidic chain-shortened products tend to be excreted in urine (Olson, 1991). In the steady state, approximately equal amounts of metabolites are excreted in the feces and urine. Some vitamin A derivatives are reexcreted into the intestinal lumen via the bile.

However, greater than optimal intakes of vitamin A will not aid in preventing infections. There are many noninfective problems due to keratinization of epithelium, such as diarrhea. The formation of kidney and bladder stones is favored when damaged epithelium interferes with normal secretion and elimination of urine, and sloughed keratinized cells may form foci for the formation of stones. There is a specific interference with reproduction caused by altered epithelium that is of great importance.
