Characterization and expression of two cDNAs encoding carbonic anhydrase in Arabidopsis thaliana.

Two distinct cDNA clones encoding carbonic anhydrase (CA) were isolated from an Arabidopsis thaliana lambda YES library. One of these clones, CA1, encodes a 36.1-kD polypeptide and is essentially the same as a previously reported Arabidopsis CA cDNA (C.A. Raines, P.R. Horsnell, C. Holder, J.C. Lloyd [1992] Plant Mol Biol 20: 1143-1148). Comparison of the… (More)
