CA2

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.

These two downtown projects received $2 million in CAI I: more than twice the largest social sub-stream, the "employment and affirmative action" program, at $950,000; more than three times what CAII spent on inner-city housing (UFG 1990, 7).
The erythroid carbonic anhydrase II (CAII) also improved the CO2 transport properties in hypoxia to respond to the respiratory condition change (Baumann et al., 1986; Dragon and Baumann, 2003), whose transcription peak acted by cAMP appeared at HH 41 during chicken embryonic development.
In this context, at the Civil Engineering Faculty from the Transilvania University of Brasov, Romania, was developed a software for the track stability analysis using a three dimensional simplified non-linear discrete model with thermal and vehicle loads (Dosa & Ungureanu, 2007; Ungureanu, 2007), model called SCFJ (Stabilitatea Caii Fara Joante = Stability of CWR).
