Detection of Human and Mouse Carbonic Anhydrase VIII/CA8 by Western Blot.
Western blot shows lysates of human brain (cerebellum) tissue and mouse brain (cerebellum) tissue. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human/Mouse Carbonic Anhydrase VIII/CA8 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB2187) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF018). A specific band was detected for Carbonic Anhydrase VIII/CA8 at approximately 36 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Background: Carbonic Anhydrase VIII/CA8
Carbonic Anhydrase VIII (CA8), also called CA‑related protein (CARP), is a cytosolic protein without CA activity (i.e., the reversible hydration of CO2) due to point mutations in the zinc-binding site (1, 2). Nevertheless, it has esterase activity. CA8 is expressed exclusively in Purkinje cells of the cerebellum, where it binds inositol 1,4,5-triphosphate receptor type 1 (3). CA8 overexpression in human colorectal cancer and non-small cell lung cancer indicates that it plays a role in the process of invasion in these types of malignancy (4, 5). The 289 amino acid rhCA8 has a predicted molecular mass of approximately 33 kDa. It shares 98% amino acid identity with mouse, rat and bovine CA8 and 78% with Xenopus.
