Entrez Gene Summary for CEACAM3 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the family of carcinoembryonic antigen-related cell adhesion molecules (CEACAMs), which are used by several bacterial pathogens to bind and invade host cells. The encoded transmembrane protein directs phagocytosis of several bacterial species that is dependent on the small GTPase Rac. It is thought to serve an important role in controlling human-specific pathogens by the innate immune system. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described.

GeneCards Summary for CEACAM3 Gene

CEACAM3 (Carcinoembryonic Antigen-Related Cell Adhesion Molecule 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CEACAM3 include gastric duplication cysts and pancreatic cystadenoma. An important paralog of this gene is CEACAM8.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CEACAM3 Gene

  • Major granulocyte receptor mediating recognition and efficient opsonin-independent phagocytosis of CEACAM-binding microorganisms, including Neissiria, Moxarella and Haemophilus species, thus playing an important role in the clearance of pathogens by the innate immune system. Responsible for RAC1 stimulation in the course of pathogen phagocytosis.
