This antibody recognizes native human CEACAM5 protein expressed in transfected mammalian cells.
CEACAM5 (CEA-related cell adhesion molecule 5, CEA) belongs to the carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) gene family. It encodes a glycosyl phosphatidyl inositol (GPI)-linked glycoprotein with a Mr of 180,000-200,000 which is most strongly expressed on epithelial cells of the fetal and adult colon and to a minor extent on epithelial cells of the stomach and sweat glands, squamous epithelial cell of the tongue, esophagus and cervix. CEACAM5 is used as a tumor marker for early detection of recurrent disease due to its expression in adenocarcinomas of the colon, lung, breast, stomach and pancreas and in mucinous ovarian carcinomas. Like all members of the CEACAM family, it consists of a single N domain, with structural homology to the immunoglobulin variable domains, followed by six immunoglobulin constant-like A (A1, A2, A3) and B domains (B1, B2, B3).
