Official Full Name
CEACAM6 carcinoembryonic antigen-related cell adhesion molecule 6 (non-specific cross reacting antigen)
Carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA; MIM 114890) is one of the most widely used tumor markers in serum immunoassay;determinations of carcinoma. An apparent lack of absolute cancer specificity for CEA probably results in part from the;presence in normal and neoplastic tissues of antigens that share antigenic determinants with the 180-kD form of CEA;(Barnett et al., 1988 (PubMed 3220478)). For background information on the CEA family of genes, see CEACAM1 (MIM;109770).
