Here we report the genomic organization of duplicated cellular retinoic acid-binding protein genes, crabp1 and crabp2, in medaka (Japanese ricefish; Oryzias latipes), the phylogenetic relationship of medaka Crabp1a, Crabp1b, Crabp2a and Crabp2b with other Crabp/CRABP sequences from teleosts/tetrapods, and the tissue-specific distribution of crabp1a, crabp1b, crabp2a, and crabp2b transcripts in adult medaka.

While a significant up-regulation was observed in the transcription of retinal dehydrogenase (raldh2), the transcription of retinol binding protein (rbp1a), retinol dehydrogenase (rdh1), cellular retinoic acid binding protein (crabp1a and crabp2a) and retinoic acid receptor subunit (raraa) were down-regulated significantly, indicating disruption of retinoid signaling.
