Cloning of the complete gene for carcinoembryonic antigen: analysis of its promoter indicates a region conveying cell type-specific expression.
Carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) is a widely used tumor marker, especially in the surveillance of colonic cancer patients. Although CEA is also present in some normal tissues, it is apparentlyExpand

Isolation and characterization of cDNA clones encoding the human carcinoembryonic antigen reveal a highly conserved repeating structure.
For the isolation of cDNA clones encoding the carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), we have constructed a cDNA library from human colon tumor mRNA. The library was screened with various oligonucleotidesExpand
