Background information

StemMACS™ Retinoic Acid is the oxidized form of retinol, also known as the liposoluble vitamin A. It acts as a ligand for the heterodimeric retinoic acid receptor RAR/RXR. Retinoic acid has been implicated in the specification of the anterior/posterior axis in the developing embryo. In pluripotent stem cell research, retinoic acid has been used in various differentiation protocols, including neural differentiation.
