9-cis-Retinoic acid activates all isoforms of the retinoic acid receptor (RAR) (Ki = 0.5-27 nM) as well as retinoid X receptor (RXR) isoforms (Ki = 3.8-12 nM) (Umemiya et al.; Wong et al.). The ability of RAR to heterodimerize with RXR, and the latter to heterodimerize with other partners allows 9-cis-retinoic acid to evoke a wide range of effects (Dawson et al.; Kane).
