Retinol binding protein (RBP4) delivers all-trans-retinol (atROL) from liver stores to peripheral tissues. Defects in RBP4 cause retinol-binding protein deficiency (RBP deficiency, MIM:180250), causing night vision problems and a typical 'xerophthalmic fundus' with progressive atrophy of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) (Seeliger et al. 1999, Biesalski et al. 1999).
