Abstract

A radioimmunosorbent technique is described which is capable of independently detecting both isozymes of carbonic anhydrase, CA I and CA II, in concentrations as low as 1 ng/ml. The technique is used to quantitate the different electrophoretic variants of red cell CA I as well as levels of CA II in the pig-tailed macaque, Macaca nemestrina.
