Summaries for CEACAM6 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CEACAM6 Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein that belongs to the carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) family whose members are glycosyl phosphatidyl inositol (GPI) anchored cell surface glycoproteins. Members of this family play a role in cell adhesion and are widely used as tumor markers in serum immunoassay determinations of carcinoma. This gene affects the sensitivity of tumor cells to adenovirus infection. The protein encoded by this gene acts as a receptor for adherent-invasive E. coli adhesion to the surface of ileal epithelial cells in patients with Crohn's disease. This gene is clustered with genes and pseudogenes of the cell adhesion molecules subgroup of the CEA family on chromosome 19. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2014]

GeneCards Summary for CEACAM6 Gene

CEACAM6 (Carcinoembryonic Antigen Related Cell Adhesion Molecule 6) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CEACAM6 include Crohn's Disease and Colorectal Cancer. Among its related pathways are Hematopoietic Stem Cell Differentiation Pathways and Lineage-specific Markers and Cell surface interactions at the vascular wall. An important paralog of this gene is CEACAM5.
