PMID:  1794956     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
All-trans retinoyl beta-glucose was chemically synthesized in good yield by reaction of retinoyl fluoride with glucose. Retinoyl glucose, which is soluble in water, shows growth-promoting activity similar to retinyl acetate in vitamin A-deficient rats. In metabolic studies, retinoyl glucose was found to be hydrolyzed to retinoic acid, but at a slower rate. The possible therapeutic uses of retinoyl glucose are discussed.
