Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1)
Exhibits carbonate dehydratase activity. Predicted to be involved in chloride ion homeostasis and one-carbon metabolic process. Predicted to localize to plasma membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in isolated hyperchlorhidrosis. Orthologous to human CA12 (carbonic anhydrase 12).
