Carbonic anhydrase II Gene Sequence, Family, Fuction and Expression Information
Carbonic anhydrase II cDNA / Gene Overview
CA2 gene / cDNA is a protein-coding gene which located on 8q21.2. The CA2 gene is conserved in chimpanzee, Rhesus monkey, dog, cow, mouse, rat, chicken, and frog.133 organisms have orthologs with human gene CA2.
The protein encoded by this gene is one of several isozymes of carbonic anhydrase, which catalyzes reversible hydration of carbon dioxide. Defects in this enzyme are associated with osteopetrosis and renal tubular acidosis. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jun 2014]
