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.

In the first section Saffady compares optical disk and magnetic disk drives and media, and in the second he compares optical disk and magnetic tape technology.
A set of transactional or database records that need to be readily accessible should be stored on a high-performance magnetic disk, while other data that is ready to be archived should be stored to a less costly tape cartridge.
Optical, tape and even magnetic disk storage has a place in the archive equation.
The other product, eFIRST Archive, is an archive system that includes a magnetic disk, optical jukeboxes and tape and offers web access to archived information using either traditional index keys or by parts of its content.
"The parametric limit for magnetic disk drive technology is about 16,000 Mbits/|cm.sup.2~, which gives us a lot of room for improvements," says Scranton.
The reference databases can be configured on CD-ROM or on high-performance magnetic disk storage.
Tape is being used to fulfill this important data storage requirement for two reasons: tape capacities have continued to double every 2-3 years and outpace magnetic disk capacity using compression; and the cost advantage of tape over magnetic disk solutions is tremendous.
In contrast, information on a magnetic disk is retrieved bit by bit by spinning the disk.
