Gene: CA4 (carbonic anhydrase 4) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CA4
Name: carbonic anhydrase 4
Description: Predicted to have carbonate dehydratase activity and zinc ion binding activity. Involved in bicarbonate transport. Localizes to several cellular components, including anchored component of external side of plasma membrane; brush border membrane; and cytoplasmic vesicle membrane. Implicated in retinitis pigmentosa and retinitis pigmentosa 17.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: CA-IV; CAIV; Car4; carbonate dehydratase IV; carbonic anhydrase IV; carbonic dehydratase IV; retinitis pigmentosa 17 (autosomal dominant); RP17
