Study shows how retinoic acid enters a cell's nucleus

...ucleus requires passage through water, a difficult journey for a hydrophobic compound. For RA to rapidly enter a cell's nucleus, it must catch a ride on a water-soluble protein called cellular retinoic acid-binding protein type II (CRABP-II). This protein was discovered over two decades ago, but until recent...
