Scientific Background:RBP4 (retinol binding protein 4) belongs to the lipocalin family and is the specific carrier for retinol (vitamin A alcohol) in the blood. It delivers retinol from the liver stores to the peripheral tissues. In plasma, the RBP-retinol complex interacts with transthyretin, which prevents its loss by filtration through the kidney glomeruli. A deficiency of vitamin A blocks secretion of the binding protein posttranslationally and results in defective delivery and supply to the epidermal cells. Clinically, RBP4 has recently been described as an adipokine that contributes to insulin resistance in the AG4KO mouse model.  It is secreted by adipocytes, and can act as a signal to other cells, when there is a decrease in plasma glucose concentration.
