Human CEACAM1 ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Human CEACAM1 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of human CEACAM1 in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA).
CEACAM1, also known as CD66a (Cluster of Differentiation 66a), is a human glycoprotein encoded by a gene. This gene encodes a member of the carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) gene family, which belongs to the immunoglobulin superfamily. CEACAM1 is mapped to 19q13.2 in human. The encoded protein was originally described in bile ducts of liver as biliary glycoprotein. Subsequently, it was found to be a cell-cell adhesion molecule detected on leukocytes, epithelia, and endothelia. The encoded protein mediates cell adhesion via homophilic as well as heterophilic binding to other proteins of the subgroup. Multiple cellular activities have been attributed to the encoded protein, including roles in the differentiation and arrangement of tissue three-dimensional structure, angiogenesis, apoptosis, tumor suppression, metastasis, and the modulation of innate and adaptive immune responses.
