Vitamin A and some of its analogs (retinoids) maintain normal differentiation of epithelial tissues by preventing aberrant squamous differentiation of cells in nonkeratinizing epithelia. They can also reverse squamous metaplasia, which develops in vivo during vitamin A deficiency. These effects are the result of the ability of retinoids to suppress ...
Crissman J D - - 1993
The normal distribution of cell division in squamous mucosa is in the basal or adjacent suprabasal cell layers. Migration of cells toward the epithelial surface results in cell differentiation, most often expressed by high molecular weight keratin intermediate filaments and components of the cornified envelope, including "involucrin." These latter expressions ...
