What is the role of carbonic anhydrase in the transport of gases during respiration ?
Carbonic anhydrase is most efficient enzyme. 70% of CO2
produced in R.B.C. combines with water in the presence of carbonic anhydrase to form carbonic acid (H2
which splits to form H+
' dissociates in the presence of carbonic anhydrase to form H2
O and CO2
passes from blood into air and is passed out along with expired air.
The carbonic anhydrase carries out the following reaction:
