We describe the expression of the bispecific antibody biscFv2429 in transgenic suspension culture cells and tobacco plants. biscFv2429 consists of two single-chain antibodies, scFv24 and scFv29, connected by the Trichoderma reesi cellobiohydrolase I linker. biscFv2429 binds two epitopes of tobacco mosaic virus (TMV): the scFv24 domain recognizes neotopes of(More)
CEA cell adhesion molecule 1 (CEACAM1), a type 1 transmembrane and homotypic cell adhesion protein belonging to the carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) gene family and expressed on epithelial cells, is alternatively spliced to produce four major isoforms with three or four Ig-like ectodomains and either long (CEACAM1-L) or short (CEACAM1-S) cytoplasmic domains.(More)
The feasibility of using tobacco for production of a recombinant antibody (T84.66/GS8 diabody) directed against the carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) and used for tumor imaging was investigated. Two constructs were generated for targeting the protein either to the apoplast or to the endoplasmic reticulum. Expression of the diabody in tobacco leaves after(More)
The epithelial cell adhesion molecule CEACAM1 (carcinoembryonic antigen cell adhesion molecule-1) is down-regulated in colon, prostate, breast, and liver cancer. Here we show that CEACAM1-4S, a splice form with four Ig-like ectodomains and a short cytoplasmic domain (14 amino acids), directly associates with annexin II, a lipid raft-associated molecule,(More)
Carcinoembryonic antigen cell adhesion molecule 1 (CEACAM1) is a type 1 transmembrane, homotypic cell adhesion protein expressed on epithelial and hematopoietic cells. CEACAM1 has four major isoforms with three or four immunoglobulin (Ig)-like ectodomains and either long or short cytoplasmic domains. In a 3D model of breast epithelial cell morphogenesis,(More)
