The Bioaim Human CEA ELISA kit is a solid phase sandwich ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) for the quantitative measurement of CEA in human serum and plasma. An antibody specific for human CEA was coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are added to the wells and any CEA present binds to the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-human CEA antibody is added. After washing away unbound biotinylated antibody, HRP-conjugated streptavidin is added to the wells. The wells are again washed and TMB substrate solution is added, which produces a blue color in direct proportion to the amount of CEA present in the initial sample. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the microwell absorbances are read at 450 nm.Research Area Cancer Biomarker;
carcinoembryonic antigen-related cell adhesion molecule 5(CEA ) Background: CEACAM-5, also known as CEA and CD66e, belongs to the large family of CEACAM and pregnancy specific glycoproteins. CEACAM-5 functions as a calcium independent adhesion molecule through homophilic and heterophilic interactions with CEACAM-1. CEACAM-5 is restricted to the apical face of intestinal epithelial cells in the adult but is more diffuse during embryonic development and in tumors. This is consistent with a role in the development and maintenance of epithelial architecture. CEACAM-5 is upregulated in a wide variety of human tumors and is a commonly used cancer marker. It promotes tumor cell migration, invasion, adhesion, and metastasis. CEACAM-5 also contributes to tumor formation by maintaining cellular proliferation in the presence of differentiation stimuli, and by blocking apoptosis following loss of ECM anchorage.
