Recombinant Human Carbonic anhydrase 1 produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 281 amino acids (1-261 a.a) and having a molecular mass of 31 kDa. Carbonic anhydrase 1 is fused to 20 amino acid His-Tag at N-terminus and purified by conventional chromatography techniques.
Carbonic anhydrase 1 is a zinc metalloenzyme that catalyses reversible hydration of CO2 (CO2 + H2O ? HCO3- + H+). Carbonic anhydrase 1 is essential to many biological processes such as cellular respiration, calcification, acid-base balance, bone resorption, and the formation of aqueous humor, cerebrospinal fluid, salvia, and gastric acid. Carbonic anhydrase 1 is abundant in erythrocytes and an early marker for erythroid differentiation.
