CD66e antigens

CD66e antigens general information

CD66d Gene ID 1084
CD66d Official Full Name carcinoembryonic antigen related cell adhesion molecule 3
CD66d Alias CGM1, CEACAM3
CD66d Cellular Expression Granulocyte
CD66d Ligand/Receptor/Association Opa I
CD66d Function Cell adhesion and neutrophil activation
CD66d Summary This gene encodes a member of the family of carcinoembryonic antigen-related cell adhesion molecules (CEACAMs), which are used by several bacterial pathogens to bind and invade host cells. The encoded transmembrane protein directs phagocytosis of several bacterial species that is dependent on the small GTPase Rac. It is thought to serve an important role in controlling human-specific pathogens by the innate immune system. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described.
