It is not particularly specific for the resulting retinal as © 1998 by CRC Press LLC Figure 5 Absorption and subsequent transport of vitamin A. Figure 6 Central cleavage of β-carotene. it will catalyze the reduction of several short- and medium-chain aliphatic aldehydes in addition to retinal. There are two pathways for retinol esterification. In the first, an acyl CoA-independent reaction is used. This involves a complex between retinol and Type II cellular retinol binding protein (CRBP II). As retinol intake increases there is a corresponding increase in the activity of the enzyme (acyl CoA retinol acyl transferase), which catalyzes the formation of this complex.

As such, these vitamins are found in lipid extracts of tissues and foods.

Vitamin E quenches free radicals as they form via the conversion of tocopherol to the tocopheroxyl radical, which is then converted to its quinone. Vitamin K serves as an H+/e– donor/acceptor in its role to facilitate the carboxylation of the peptide glutamyl residues of certain proteins to their epoxide form. Vitamin C and vitamin A are both good H+/e– donor/acceptors in the suppression of free radical formation. Of course, indirectly, all those vitamins that serve as coenzymes are involved as well.
