Normal morphogenesis of vertebrate embryos is severely affected by externally doses of retinoic acid. Typically it leads to craniofacial abnormalities and heart defects and to limb deformities. Limbs in development are sensitive to deficiency and excess of RA. Genetic and biochemical manipulations indicate that retinoids are crucial for vertebate limb development at two stages, in early organogenesis for forelimb bud initiation, and later in mid-organogenesis, for proper limb outgrowth.
