Target

  • RelevanceCEA-related cell adhesion molecule 20 (CEACAM20) belongs to the carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) gene family. It encodes a putative glycoprotein which is membrane-bound via a transmembrane domain. The CEACAM20 protein contains a single N domain followed by 4 immunoglobulin-like A (A1, A2) and B (B1, B2) domains. Expression of CEACAM20 can be found in tissues of prostate, testis, duodenum and small intestine with highest expression in prostate. The function of CEACAM family members varies widely: they function as cell adhesion molecules, tumor suppressors, regulators of lymphocyte and dendritic cell activation, receptors of Neisseria species and other bacteria. High expression of CEACAM20 in tissue of prostate carcinoma and in prostate carcinoma cell lines suggest that CEACAM20 can be used as a tumor marker.

Anti-CEACAM20 antibody [HT-12D8] images

  • Spectral Confocal Microscopy of CHO cells using ab59626 at 1ug/106 cells. CHO cells were transiently transfected with an expression vector encoding CEACAM20. Binding of HT-12D8 (ab59626) was visualized with a FITC-conjugated secondary antibody (green). Actin filaments are labeled with Alexa Fluor-555 Phalloidin (red). Cell nuclei are stained with DAPI (blue).
  • BOSC23 cells were transiently transfected with expression vectors containing either the cDNA of CEACAM1, CEACAM3-8 or CEACAM19-21. Expression of the constructs was tested with monoclonal antibodies known to recognize the corresponding proteins (CEACAM1, 3, 4, 5 and 6: D14HD11; CEACAM7: BAC2; CEACAM8: Tet2; CEACAM19,21: a-myc; CEACAM20: a-flag; green curves). An irrelevant monoclonal antibody served as a negative control (black curves). For specificity testing, protein G purified HT-12D8 (ab59626) was tested on all CEACAM transfectants. A positive signal was obtained onlywith CEACAM20 transfected cells (red curve).
