Retinoic acid peel, or simply yellow peel, belongs to chemical peel with a very short recovery period. Retinoids, synthesized equivalents of vitamin A, regulate the processes of differentiation, proliferation, and intercellular communication. When retinoids get into a cell, they make a bond with nuclear sensors

Previously unknown effect of vitamin A on embryonic development identified.

The signal molecule, retinoic acid, is a product of vitamin A which helps to instruct how different types of tissue are to be formed in the growing embryo. For the first time, researchers from the Lund University have studied the effects of retinoic acid in relation to how blood cells develop from human stem cells. In the laboratory model, the stem cells are exposed to specific signal molecules, thereby developing into blood-producing cells.
