Evidence for the existence of two carbonic anhydrase isozymes in rabbit ciliary body

  • K. Kishida
  • N. Ochi


Two carbonic anhydrase isozymes were found in the rabbit ciliary body. Their isoelectric points were determined to be pH 6.6 and pH 7.4, respectively. The total activity of the higher isoelectric point isozyme was higher than that of the lower isoelectric point isozyme.
