CA12Antibody Product Information
Immunogen:Recombinant Human Carbonic Anhydrase XII / CA12 protein (Catalog#10617-H08H)
Clone ID:04
Ig Type:
Formulation:0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS with 5% trehalose
Preparation:This antibody was produced from a hybridoma resulting from the fusion of a mouse myeloma with B cells obtained from a mouse immunized with purified, recombinant Human Carbonic Anhydrase XII / CA12 (rh Carbonic Anhydrase XII / CA12; Catalog#10617-H08H; NP_001209.1; Met1-Gln291). The IgG fraction of the cell culture supernatant was purified by Protein A affinity chromatography.

Immunofluorescence staining of Human CA12 in MCF7 cells. Cells were fixed with 4% PFA, blocked with 10% serum, and incubated with Mouse anti-Human CA12 monoclonal antibody (15 µg/ml). Then cells were stained with the Alexa Fluor® 488-conjugated Goat Anti-mouse IgG secondary antibody (left panel, captured by laser confocal scanning microscope; right panel, captured by fluorescence microscope), countstained with DAPI (blue). Positive staining was localized to cytomembrane.

Carbonic anhydrases (CAs) are a large family of zinc metalloenzymes first discovered in 1933 that catalyze the reversible hydration of carbon dioxide. CAs participate in a variety of biological processes, including respiration, calcification, acid-base balance, bone resorption, and the formation of aqueous humor, cerebrospinal fluid, saliva, and gastric acid. CA12, also known as Car12 and carbonic anhydrase XII, is a type I  membrane enzyme of an N-terminal extracellular catalytic domain, a membrane-spanning α-helix, and a small intracellular C-terminal domain. It is highly expressed in colon, kidney, prostate, intestine and activated lymphocytes and moderately expressed in pancreas, ovary, and testis. Overexpression of the CA12 is observed in certain human cancers and is used as a tumor marker. rmCA12 corresponds to the extracellular domain and has both carbonic anhydrase activity and esterase activity.
