Carbonic Anhydrase XI Antibodies
Carbonic Anhydrase XI (CA11, CA XI) is a member of the carbonic anhydrases (CAs) family of zinc metalloenzymes that catalyze the reversible hydration of carbon dioxide. Carbonic Anhydrase XI 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. Further, Carbonic Anhydrase XI show extensive diversity in tissue distribution and in their subcellular localization. CA XI is likely a secreted protein, however, radical changes at active site residues completely conserved in CA isozymes with catalytic activity, make it unlikely that it has carbonic anhydrase activity. It shares properties in common with two other acatalytic CA isoforms, CA VIII and CA X. CA XI is most abundantly expressed in brain, and may play a general role in the central nervous system.
