Preparation and Storage
Store at 4 degree C or at -20 degree C if preferred. This product should be stored undiluted. Storage in frost free freezers is not recommended. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Should this product contain a precipitate we recommend microcentrifugation before use.
Shelf Life: 18 months from date of despatch.
Other Notes
Small volumes of anti-CA2 antibody vial(s) may occasionally become entrapped in the seal of the product vial during shipment and storage. If necessary, briefly centrifuge the vial on a tabletop centrifuge to dislodge any liquid in the container`s cap. Certain products may require to ship with dry ice and additional dry ice fee may apply.

NCBI Summary for CA2
The protein encoded by this gene is one of several isozymes of carbonic anhydrase, which catalyzes reversible hydration of carbon dioxide. Defects in this enzyme are associated with osteopetrosis and renal tubular acidosis. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jun 2014]
UniProt Comments for CA2
CA2: Essential for bone resorption and osteoclast differentiation. Reversible hydration of carbon dioxide. Can hydrates cyanamide to urea. Involved in the regulation of fluid secretion into the anterior chamber of the eye. Interacts with SLC4A4. Interaction with SLC4A7 regulates SLC4A7 transporter activity. Activated by X-ray, histamine, L-adrenaline, L- and D-phenylalanine, L- and D-histidine, L-His-OMe and beta-Ala- His (carnosine). Competitively inhibited by saccharin, thioxolone, coumarins, 667-coumate, celecoxib (Celebrex), valdecoxib (Bextra), SC-125, SC-560, diclofenac, acetate, azide, bromide, sulfonamide derivatives such as acetazolamide (AZA), methazolamide (MZA), ethoxzolamide (EZA), dichlorophenamide (DCP), brinzolamide, dansylamide, thiabendazole-5-sulfonamide, trifluoromethane sulfonamide and N-hydroxysulfamide, fructose-based sugar sulfamate RWJ-37497, and Foscarnet (phosphonoformate trisodium salt). Repressed strongly by hydrogen sulfide(HS) and weakly by nitrate (NO(3)). Esterase activity weakly reduced by cyanamide. N- hydroxyurea interfers with zinc binding and inhibit activity. Belongs to the alpha-carbonic anhydrase family.
