Retinol (Vitamin A) is known to destabilize membranes. The effect of one of its natural derivatives, Retinoic Acid, was therefore studied on membrane stability, by inversely correlating this stability with Phospholipase A(2) activity. Lipid metalloporphyrin interactions have been the object of intense research in recent times. Our results revealed that the administration of Retinoic Acid (50,000 I.U.) caused a tremendous induction of hepatic Phospholipase A(2) activity in Wistar rats. However when Retinoic Acid and Tin-mesoporphyrin (50 micromol/kgbw) were co-administered, hepatic Phospholipase A(2) activity was inhibited. This result clearly reveals a possible therapeutic application of this metalloporphyrin in alleviating membrane destabilization, connected with Retinoic acid administration.
