Gene: CA6 (carbonic anhydrase 6) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CA6
Name: carbonic anhydrase 6
Description: Predicted to have carbonate dehydratase activity and zinc ion binding activity. Involved in detection of chemical stimulus involved in sensory perception of bitter taste. Localizes to extracellular space.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: CA-VI; carbonate dehydratase VI; carbonic anhydrase VI; carbonic anhydrase VI nirs variant 2; GUSTIN; MGC21256; salivary carbonic anhydrase; secreted carbonic anhydrase
