The immunobiochemical properties of urinary carcinoembryonic antigen (U-CEA) purified from non-tumor-bearing patients with urinary tract infection were investigated. Moreover, immunohistochemical localization of CEA in the normal urothelium was studied and clinical significance of U-CEA was also analyzed statistically. The purified U-CEA showed a molecular weight of approximately 160,000 by the Western blotting and an antigenicity identical to the purified CEA (Calbiochem Corp.). Amino acids… CONTINUE READING
