  • Ceacam6 (carcinoembryonic antigen cell adhesion molecule) is a GPI-anchored membrane glycoprotein recently identified in human fetal lung undergoing in vitro hormone-induced differentiation of type II cells. The protein is a tumor biomarker in adult lung and selected other tissues, where it has antimicrobial activity; however, expression and function in lung have not been characterized. Undifferentiated epithelial cells were isolated by collagenase/trypsin digestion from human fetal lung (16-21… CONTINUE READING
