- Vitamin A is a critical regulator of energy storage and expenditure and is thought to prevent metabolic diseases
- Recent studies of dietary supplementation with vitamin A showed results associating this vitamin with metabolic complications and increase in mortality questioning its benefits.
- Metabolic function of vitamin A includes action of its two major metabolites retinaldehyde and retinoic acid.
- Distinct enzymes control their production: 1) alcohol dehydrogenases (Adh) oxidize vitamin A to generate retinaldehyde; and 2) retinaldehyde dehydrogenases (Raldh) oxidize retinaldehyde to retinoic acid.
- High-fat feeding induces retinoic acid synthesis, whereas genetic deficiency in retinaldehyde production is associated with obesity. Metabolic function of retinoic acid depends on transcriptional activation of distinct nuclear receptors implicated in fat formation.
- Recent studies highlighted retinaldehyde's functions in fat formation in two mouse models demonstrating Rald deficiency (Adh1-/-) and Rald accumulation (Raldh1-/-) in fat tissue.
- Indication of an impaired differentiation of Raldh1-/- fat cells and linked these responses to the transcriptional repression of two nuclear receptors: peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-gamma (PPAR-gamma) and retinoid X receptor (RXR).
- Receptors are critical determinants for the fat formation in vivo and in vitro.
- Further research directions:
- Mechanisms regulating retinaldehyde effects in obesity Vitamin A paradigm in the regulation of atherogenesis Vitamin A implication in the regulation of metabolic sex differences
- Identify targets in vitamin A metabolism for obesity, cardiovascular disease, and type 2 diabetes treatment
