abnormal vitamin a metabolism Gene Set

Dataset MPO Gene-Phenotype Associations
Category disease or phenotype associations
Type phenotype
Description altered ability to metabolize any of the vitamin A compounds, retinol, retinal (retinaldehyde) and retinoic acid; animals can not synthesize vitamin A de novo, but form it through oxidative cleavage of carotenoids supplied in the diet (Mammalian Phenotype Ontology, MP_0011233)
