Immunohistochemical staining (Formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded sections) of (A) human hepatocellular carcinoma and (B) human ovarian carcinoma with RBP1 monoclonal antibody, clone RBP/872 (Cat # MAB14597).
This gene encodes the carrier protein involved in the transport of retinol (vitamin A alcohol) from the liver storage site to peripheral tissue. Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin necessary for growth, reproduction, differentiation of epithelial tissues, and vision. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq
