The recombinant human CEACAM5/Fc is a disulfide-linked homodimer after removal of the signal peptide. The reduced monomer consists of 899 amino acids and has a predicted molecular mass of 99.4 kDa. In SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions, the apparent molecular mass of rhCEACAM5/Fc monomer is approximately 160-180 kDa due to glycosylation.
Lyophilized from sterile PBS, pH 7.4 Please contact us for any concerns or special requirements. Normally 5 % - 8 % trehalose, mannitol and 0.01% Tween80 are added as protectants before lyophilization.
Please refer to the specific buffer information in the hard copy of CoA.
In general, recombinant proteins are provided as lyophilized powder which are shipped at ambient temperature. Bulk packages of recombinant proteins are provided as frozen liquid. They are shipped out with blue ice unless customers require otherwise.
Stability & Storage
Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -20℃ to -80℃ Store it under sterile conditions at -20℃ to -80℃. It is recommended that the protein be aliquoted for optimal storage. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
A hardcopy of COA with reconstitution instruction is sent along with the products. Please refer to it for detailed information.
CEACAM5, also known as CEA or D66e, belongs to the large CEACAM subfamily of the immunoglobulin superfamily. CEACAM5 is expressed primarily by epithelial cells, and is synthesized as a glycoprotein with an MW of 180 kDa comprising 60% carbohydrate. CEACAM5 contains one Ig-like V-type domain at the N-terminus, followed by six Ig-like C2-type domains and a GPI anchor, and exists as a homodimer. CEACAM5 and CEACAM6 are overexpressed in many cancers and are associated with adhesion and invasion. CEACAM5 can mediate cell-cell adhesion through homotypic and heterotypic interactions. It functions as a homotypic intercellular adhesion molecule and serves as a widely used tumor marker, since it is expressed at higher levels in tumorous tissues than in corresponding normal tissues. CEACAM5 has also been shown to contribute to tumorigenicity by inhibiting cellular differentiation. In addition, CEACAM5 is identified as the host receptor for the Dr family of adhesins of E.Coli, and the binding of E.coli Dr adhesins leads to dissociation of the CEACAM5 homodimer.
