    It is explored, whether lycopene possesses pro-vitamin A (VA) activity comparable to known VA derivatives. It is found that lycopene can restore VA deficiency and compensate VA for retinoic acid receptor (RAR)-mediated signaling as the major function of VA in the mammalian organism. Lycopene administration can initiate upregulation of RAR-mediated signaling in various organs in VA deficient diet fed animals via potential novel bioactive lycopene metabolites. This indicates that lycopene possesses partial pro-VA activity in mice transmitted via RAR-mediated signaling.
