GOMES TOTTI, Valéria Maria et al. ACTION OF ALL-TRANS-RETINOIC ACID ON THE FLOOR OF THE MOUTH STRUCTURES OF RAT FETUSES. Rev. chil. anat. [online]. 2001, vol.19, n.2, pp. 197-204. ISSN 0716-9868. doi: 10.4067/S0716-98682001000200012.
The objective of the present study was to characterize morphologically, morphometrically and stereologically the epithelial changes in the floor of the mouth of fetuses from rats that received all-trans-retinoic acid during pregnancy. The results suggest that all-trans-retinoic acid causes the appearance of malformed immature and less developed fetuses
