QuickView for CA2 (gene)

Gene Symbol:
CA2 Homo sapiens Homo sapiens
Full name:
carbonic anhydrase 2
CA-II, CAC, CAII, Car2, HEL-76, HEL-S-282, carbonic anhydrase 2, carbonate dehydratase II, carbonic anhydrase B, carbonic anhydrase C, carbonic anhydrase II, carbonic dehydratase, epididymis luminal protein 76, epididymis secretory protein Li 282
Genomic Location:
Chr 8: 86563383-86580973
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.
