Mammalian erythrocytes often contain more than one type of carbonic anhydrase and human erythrocytes in particular yield two prinicpal forms of the enzyme, which are distinguished foremost by their relative specific activities in regards to the catalysis of the important reversible carbon dioxide hydration reaction. Although these isozymes exhibit many other differences, they have in common the stringent requirement of one zinc ion per molecular weight unit of about 30,000.
