Prior to the discovery of carbonic anhydrase (CA) III two groups reported the existence of a protein of approximately 30 kDa in the soluble enzyme fraction of skeletal muscle. This unidentified protein was designated “protein F”38 and basic muscle protein.5 Several years later, a number of studies18,19,27,35 clearly established that this 30-kDa protein, which is found predominantly in skeletal muscle, was a third CA isozyme different from CA I and CA II. This CA isozyme, first called CA A,18 is now designated CA III.
