Carbonic anhydrase II (gene name CA2), is one of fourteen forms of human α carbonic anhydrases. Carbonic anhydrase catalyzes reversible hydration of carbon dioxide. Defects in this enzyme are associated with osteopetrosis and renal tubular acidosis. Renal carbonic anhydrase allows the reabsorption of sodium ions in the proximal tubule. [1]


Carbonic anhydrase II has been shown to interact with Band 3[2][3][4][5] and Sodium-hydrogen antiporter 1.[6]
