MA5-15799 targets CEA in IF and WB applications and shows reactivity with Human samples.
The MA5-15799 immunogen is purified recombinant fragment of human CEA expressed in E. Coli.
MA5-15799 detects CEA which has a predicted molecular weight of approximately 77kDa.
Carcino Embryonic Antigen (CEA) is synthesised during development in the fetal gut, and is re-expressed in increased amounts in intestinal carcinomas and several other tumors. Antibodies to CEA are useful in identifying the origin of various metastatic adenocarcinomas and in distinguishing pulmonary adenocarcinomas (60 to 70% are CEA+) from pleural mesotheliomas (rarely or weakly CEA+). The carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) is a member of a large family of glycoproteins and a useful tumor marker for adenocarcinoma. Tissue specificity: Found in adenocarcinomas of endodermally derived digestive system epithelium and fetal colon.
