Description

Vitamin A plays an important role in the visual process. It is isomerised to the 11-cis isomer and subsequently bound to the opsin to form the photoreceptor for vision under subdued light. Vitamin A also participates in the formation and maintenance of the integrity of epithelial tissues and mucous membranes.
