However, in this childhood hypertension study, the results have shown that the expressions of RARs ([alpha], [beta], and [gamma]) in the peripheral blood have no significant difference between the two groups, which may be related to the delayed response of RARs, as retinoic acid receptor showed over expression when serum retinol was deficiency in the tissue.
