Summaries for CEACAM5 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CEACAM5 Gene

  • This gene encodes a cell surface glycoprotein that represents the founding member of the carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) family of proteins. The encoded protein is used as a clinical biomarker for gastrointestinal cancers and may promote tumor development through its role as a cell adhesion molecule. Additionally, the encoded protein may regulate differentiation, apoptosis, and cell polarity. This gene is present in a CEA family gene cluster on chromosome 19. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2015]

GeneCards Summary for CEACAM5 Gene

CEACAM5 (Carcinoembryonic Antigen Related Cell Adhesion Molecule 5) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CEACAM5 include Rectal Neoplasm and Colorectal Cancer. Among its related pathways are Metabolism of proteins and Response to elevated platelet cytosolic Ca2+. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include protein homodimerization activity and GPI anchor binding. An important paralog of this gene is CEACAM1.
