retinol binding protein


retinol binding protein
(RBP) an α-globulin synthesized and secreted by the liver. It binds retinol and transthyretin in a 1:1:1 ratio; the complex solubilizes retinol and protects it from glomerular filtration and renal excretion while transporting it to the peripheral tissues.
