The expression of mRNA for retinoic acid receptor beta (RAR-beta) was induced by all trans-retinoic acid in murine S91 melanoma cells. The induction of RAR-beta was dose-dependent, rapid and insensitive to cycloheximide. Both 13-cis-retinoic acid and 3,4-didehydro-all trans-retinoic acid also induced expression of RAR-beta but were only effective at concentrations 100-fold greater than all trans-retinoic acid. The expression of RAR-alpha and RAR-gamma was unaffected by retinoic acid.
