The literature regarding how retinol bound to RBP is transferred to or taken up by cells is also not fully resolved. There have been convincing reports identifying and characterizing a cell surface receptor for RBP, termed Stra6, which binds RBP with high affinity [73–76]. Stra6 was first identified as a gene of unknown function, which was upregulated in WiDr human colon adenocarcinoma cells upon treatment with retinoic acid [75,76], and it was subsequently shown to bind RBP with high affinity [74,77].
