Recombinant Human CEACAM5/CD66e/CEA (C-Fc)

Cat.No.: CP16

Recombinant Human CEACAM5 (C-Fc)
Description
Recombinant Human Carcinoembryonic Antigen-Related Cell Adhesion Molecule 5 is produced by our Mammalian expression system and the target gene encoding Lys35-Ala685 is expressed with a Fc tag at the C-terminus.
Accession #:NP_004354.3
Known as:Carcinoembryonic antigen-related cell adhesion molecule 5; CEACAM5; Carcinoembryonic antigen; CEA; Meconium antigen 100; CD66e
Formulation
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution of 20mMPB,150mMNaCl,pH7.2.
Quality Control
Purity:Greater than 95% as determined by reducing SDS-PAGE.
Endotoxin:Less than 0.1 ng/µg (1 EU/µg) as determined by LAL test.
Reconstitution
Always centrifuge tubes before opening. Do not mix by vortex or pipetting.
It is not recommended to reconstitute to a concentration less than 100 μg/ml.
Dissolve the lyophilized protein in ddH2O.
Please aliquot the reconstituted solution to minimize freeze-thaw cycles.
Storage
Lyophilized protein should be stored at < -20°C, though stable at room temperature for 3 weeks.
Reconstituted protein solution can be stored at 4-7°C for 2-7 days.
Aliquots of reconstituted samples are stable at < -20°C for 3 months.
Background
Carcinoembryonic antigen-related cell adhesion molecules (CEACAMs) belong to a group of mammalian immunoglobulin related glycoproteins. They play critical roles in cell–cell recognition. CEACAM5, also called CEA and CD66e, is characterized by having seven extracellular Ig domains and a glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchor. CEACAM5 is expressed primarily by epithelial cells, and functions as a calcium-independent adhesion molecule through homophilic and heterophilic interactions with CEACAM1. Studies have shown that CEACAM5 is overexpressed in a majority of carcinomas, and its overexpression can protect tumor cells from apoptosis. It is commonly used as a cancer marker.
