... if it might play a role in gut alkalization and ion homeostasis, a polyclonal antibody was prepared to a specific unique amino acid sequence of AgCA9 and was used to determine the protein distribution using immunohistochemistry and confocal microscopy (ibid.) ( Smith et al.,2008 ). Fig. 4 shows a summary...

.... This mechanism is promptly interrupted in the AM by blood ingestion. RT-PCR results indicated the presence of carbonic anhydrase in the midgut cells, which apparently is required to maintain the pH at 6 in the midgut of unfed females. Investigations on the phenomenon of alkalization observed after blood...

... 7.0 and 8.0, the pH inside the anterior midgut is close to 11.0. Alkalization is likely to involve bicarbonate/carbonate ions. These ions are produced in vivo by the enzymatic action of carbonic anhydrase. The purpose of this study was to investigate the role of this enzyme in the alkalization...
