Human Recombinant Carbonic Anhydrase (CA) 2

The Human Recombinant Carbonic Anhydrase (CA) 2 preserves acid-base balance in blood and other tissues.

The enzyme Carbonic anhydrase 2 (CA2) belongs to the enzyme group that catalyzes rapid inter-conversion of carbon dioxide and water to carbonic acid, bicarbonate, and protons (CO2 + H2O to HCO3 + H), a reaction that takes place rather gradually in the absence of a catalyst. The majority of carbonic anhydrases enclose a zinc ion in their active site and thus is categorized as metalloenzymes. The most critical function of Carbonic anhydrase is said to preserve acid-base balance in blood and other tissues, and to help convey carbon dioxide of tissues.

Carbonic anhydrases exist in areas of life. Mammalian carbonic anhydrase is monomeric and is a part of the alpha class. Mutations in the CA2 gene cause the CA2 deficiency syndrome, an autosomal recessive disorder that results in renal tubular acidosis, osteoporosis, and cerebral calcification.
