All-trans-retinol (atROL) circulates in the bloodstream in complex with transthyretin (TTR) and retinol- binding protein 4 (RBP4). The receptor Stimulated by retinoic acid gene 6 protein homologue (STRA6) acts as a high-affinity cell-surface receptor for the complex (Berry et al. 2012), removing atROL and transporting it into tissues expressing STRA6, including the eyes (Kawaguchi et al. 2007).
