Equine carbonic anhydrase isozymes (CA-I and CA-II) were purified from erythrocytes by several column chromatography. Polyclonal anti-CA-I and anti-CA-II sera were produced in rabbits. Sensitive competitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISA) were established to determine the developmental changes in CA-I and CA-II levels in equine erythrocytes.(More)
A full-length cDNA clone of a canine carbonic anhydrase VI (CA-VI) was generated from the canine parotid gland by using a reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) technique with degenerate primers designed from conserved regions of the same locus in humans and bovines employing RACE (rapid amplification of cDNA ends) techniques. The cDNA(More)
The localization of bovine carbonic anhydrase isozyme VI (CA-VI) was examined immunohistochemically in bovine mammary glands during early lactation period (after 2-3 days of postpartum) and dry period (at about 2 months preparturition in adults), and young calves (at 30 and 150 days after birth) using specific CA-VI antiserum. The immunoreaction for(More)
Concentrations of bovine carbonic anhydrase isozyme VI (CA-IV) in bovine serum, saliva, normal milk, colostrum, submandibular gland, liver, and mammary gland were determined. CA-VI was purified from bovine saliva and an antibody to CA-VI was generated. The concentrations of CA-VI in the saliva (7.8 ± 7.9 μg/ml), serum (2.1± 5.7 ng/ml), milk (7.9 ± 12.1(More)
Although endoscopy is the definitive diagnostic method for the detection of colonic ulcers, the equipment required for performing the test is costly and difficult to use. Therefore, a simple cost-effective and reliable screening test for intestinal tract bleeding is needed. To this end, we measured carbonic anhydrase isozymes (CA-I and CA-II) originating(More)
