GeneCards Summary for CEACAM8 Gene
CEACAM8 (Carcinoembryonic Antigen Related Cell Adhesion Molecule 8) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CEACAM8 include Endocarditis. Among its related pathways are Cell surface interactions at the vascular wall and Innate Immune System. An important paralog of this gene is CEACAM1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CEACAM8 Gene
Cell surface glycoprotein that plays a role in cell adhesion in a calcium-independent manner (PubMed:8776764, PubMed:2022629, PubMed:11590190). Mediates heterophilic cell adhesion with other carcinoembryonic antigen-related cell adhesion molecules, such as CEACAM6 (PubMed:8776764, PubMed:2022629, PubMed:11590190). Heterophilic interaction with CEACAM8 occurs in activated neutrophils (PubMed:8776764).
