The enzyme carbonic anhydrase appears to be a central molecular component in the suite of physiological and biochemical adaptations to low salinity found in euryhaline crustaceans. It is present in high activities in the organs responsible for osmotic and ionic regulation, the gills, and more specifically, the individual gills that are specialized for active ion uptake from dilute sea water. Within those gills carbonic anhydrase is distributed among different subcellular pools, the cytoplasm… CONTINUE READING
