chemical formula for calcium hydroxide.


A gene on chromosome 8q22 that encodes an isoenzyme of carbonic anhydrase, a zinc metalloenzyme that catalyses the reversible hydration of carbon dioxide. Carbonic anhydrase 2 is essential for bone resorption and osteoclast differentiation.

Molecular pathology
CA2 mutations are associated with osteopetrosis and renal tubular acidosis.

A subset of roughly 13 stations within CAII was randomly selected for scallop sampling on each trip.
Scallop shell height, depth, sampling area (CAI, CAII, or open areas), and month were used as variables to predict meat weight, with a random effect incorporated to account for temporal and fine-scale spatial variability (Northeast Fisheries Science Center 2014).
Preliminary (partially audited) observer data, including yellowtail bycatch, are available to APSD for monitoring purposes within 24 h of the end of observed fishing trips in CAI, CAII, and NLCA.

Expression of CAII mRNA was not detected in the ED of WT and [alpha]ERKO at 10 and 18 days of ages (Figure 4A), while CAII mRNA was expressed in WT and [alpha]ERKO mice at 60 days of age (Figure 4A).
CAII is a cytoplasmic enzyme which helps regulate intracellular pH and HC[O.
To our knowledge, this is a first report of the expression of the mRNAs and their proteins for CAII, NHE3, DRA, CFTR, and ATPase [alpha]1 subunit in the mouse ED during postnatal development.
Spawning was semiannual at CAI and CAII in 2011 and 2012, and spring spawning took place in 2013 (Fig.
Gonads recovered in July and were ripe in August at CAI and in September at CAII (Table 2, Fig.
During 2011, the mean GSI was greatest at CAI, whereas in 2012 the mean GSI at CAII was greatest (Fig.
