The distribution of carbonic anhydrase in the human, monkey, and rat lung was studied by the histochemical method of Hansson. High activity of this enzyme was demonstrated in the endothelium of pulmonary capillaries. In the human and the monkey lung enzyme activity was exhibited in the whole circumference of the capillaries, but in the rat enzyme activity is confined to capillary segments having close contact with alveolar epithelium forming the blood-air barrier. Staining was inhibited by 10… CONTINUE READING
