The fat soluble compound retinol (vitamin A) effects directly the lysosomal membrane which leads to the release of the hydrolases contained in the lysosomes. A possible synergistic effect between microwave exposure and retinol treatment should be investigated. The lysosomes were isolated from rat liver tissue. The studied enzymes were β-glucuronidase, acid phosphatase, and cathepsin D.
