Receptor-selective acetylenic retinoid; binds at retinoid acid receptors (RAR) -β and -γ. Topically used for the treatment of skin disorders, particularly psoriasis and acne. Implicated in the treatment of basal cell carcinomas; induces upregulation of Bax in vivo. Exhibits antiproliferative and proapoptotic activity. Upregulates TIGs (Tazarotene-induced genes), including the cell adhesion molecule TIG1 and the tumor-suppressor TIG3.
