However, this particular function seems to be unique to RXR and may be the function that underlies the remarkable difference between the ligand-binding affinities of RARs and RXRs (Table 3). RAR binds its ligand with a very high affinity and thus can respond to low ligand concentrations by profoundly affecting the rates of transcription of target genes. In contrast, the first step in the RXR response is not a direct transcriptional response. Instead, this step, which requires significantly higher ligand concentrations, comprises the release of subunits from receptor tetramers, making them available for subsequent steps leading to transcriptional regulation.

The CMC of RA is thus similar to the reported upper limit of the CMC for retinol (RADDA and SMITH 1970), but more than three orders of magnitude lower than reported CMC values for bile acids (SMALL 1971) and tenfold lower than the CMC of the long-chain fatty acid palmitate (CISTOLA et al. 1988). These observations indicate that retinoids self-associate into micelles at substantially lower concentrations than other small amphipathic compounds. , micelle formation stabilizes the protonated form of RA (Noy 1992a).

Interactions of Retinoids with Proteins A major fraction of retinoids in vivo is associated with specialized retinoidbinding proteins. lactoglobulin in milks of many mammals. It is generally believed that these proteins serve to increase the concentrations of their hydrophobic ligands in aqueous spaces thereby allowing higher fluxes of the ligands to reach target sites. , at the sites of storage Physical-Chemical Properties and Action of Retinoids 11 or synthesis, and by which they unload the ligands at the correct target sites are not completely clear at the present time (see also Sect.
