Carbonic anhydrase is found in: A.WBC B.RBC C.Blood plasma. D.All of the above

Answer: B. RBC

Carbonic anhydrase is found in red blood cells.

The carbonic anhydrase enzymes work to catalyze the conversion of carbon dioxide and water to the dissociated ions of carbonic acid. This produces bicarbonate anions which get dissolved in the blood plasma. The catalyzed reaction is reversed in the lungs, resulting in the formation of CO2, which is then exhaled.
