Control of Nuclear Retinoid Receptor Expression (1994)

Title:

Control of Nuclear Retinoid Receptor Expression

Key words:

retinoic acid receptors, cyclic AMP

Research Institution:

Marshall University

Location:

West Virginia

Researcher:

Richard M Niles

Project Description:

Dr. Niles studied the role of retinoic acid in prevention and treatment of certain types of cancer and the way these effects are mediated by nuclear retinoic acid receptors. He discovered that an important regulatory molecule, cyclic AMP, can decrease the amount of these receptors and potentially interfere with the action of retinoic acid.
