Retinol: Predominant form of vitamin A in corpus luteum
- 9 Downloads
We could not confirm the results of a previous research group2,3 which stated that retinal (vitamin A aldehyde) is present in corpus luteum of bovine origin. On the contrary we establish the occurrence of retinol (vitamin A alcohol) in both human and bovine corpora lutea. Identity of the compound is confirmed by its chromatographic behavior on high performance liquid chromatographic systems (adsorption and reversed phase) and by spectrometric analysis (UV, fluorimetry).
