概要 beta-cryptoxanthin appears to be more an efficient provitamin A source than other carotenoids and xanthophylls including beta-carotene, since beta-cryptoxanthin can act not only as a RAR agonist but also a source of vitamin A. Taking into account that the pharmacodynamics difference between beta-cryptoxanthin and atRA, beta-cryptoxanthin appears to exert beneficial effects on atherogenesis through RAR activation in the manner different from atRA.
