Dorzolamide is a carbonic anhydrase inhibitor (CAI) that reduces the activity of carbonic anhydrase II secreted by non-pigmented ciliary epithelial cells, which keeps bicarbonate ions from being transported along with the sodium cation to the posterior chamber of the eye.
(12) Another possible mechanism is the presence of high titers of an autoantibody directed against carbonic anhydrase II. Inhibition of this enzyme would be expected to impair intracellular generation of hydrogen ions.

The differential analysis of platelet proteome between study groups showed that the only discriminatory protein, affecting the response to aspirin, is carbonic anhydrase II. Exactly the same results were obtained in different settings, both in the collagen-induced aggregates and in the nonaggregated platelets (Table 3).

To further identify the effects of PTL on osteoclastogenic differentiation in RAW264.7 cells, expression of osteoclast-related genes, including RANK, Calcitonin Receptor, Carbonic Anhydrase II, MMP-9, Cathepsin K, and TRAP, was investigated following coculture with treated hPDLCs (Figure 6).
