CA5A Gene Sequence, Family, Fuction and Expression Information

CA5A cDNA / Gene Overview

CA5A gene / cDNA is a protein-coding gene which located on 16q24.2. The CA5A gene is conserved in chimpanzee, dog, cow, mouse, rat, and C.elegans.194 organisms have orthologs with human gene CA5A.

CA5A cDNA / Gene Function

Carbonic anhydrases (CAs) are a large family of zinc metalloenzymes that catalyze the reversible hydration of carbon dioxide. They participate in a variety of biological processes, including respiration, calcification, acid-base balance, bone resorption, and the formation of aqueous humor, cerebrospinal fluid, saliva, and gastric acid. They show extensive diversity in tissue distribution and in their subcellular localization. CA VA is localized in the mitochondria and expressed primarily in the liver. It may play an important role in ureagenesis and gluconeogenesis. CA5A gene maps to chromosome 16q24.3 and an unprocessed pseudogene has been assigned to 16p12-p11.2. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
