CA.1afa.5A

A gene on chromosome 16p24.3 that encodes a carbonic anhydrase, a zinc metalloenzyme that catalyses the reversible hydration of carbon dioxide. Carbonic anhydrases participate in various biological processes, including respiration, calcification, maintaining acid-base balance and bone resorption, as well as producing aqueous humour, cerebrospinal fluid, saliva and gastric acid. Carbonic anhydrase 5A is localised in mitochondria, expressed primarily in the liver and may play an important role in ureagenesis and gluconeogenesis.

The locations of the points where the FN branches met the TA line were examined by the observation on the verification of the TA line as a reference line for the Zbr at the condylar line.
In Type I (9 cases, 36%), single temporozygomaticobuccal trunk was found in the condylar area issuing the Tbr, Zbr, and Bbr (Figure 2(a)).
The Zbr passed over the TA line in the condylar area in 18 cases (72%).
(2) Given that the Zbr mostly coursed over the TA line (tragus-ala line) at the condylar area, tragus-ala reference line would be useless near the mandibular condyle.
