该基因编码癌相关抗原,是一个家族的成员,至少包含两种I型膜蛋白。这种抗原在大多数正常上皮细胞和胃肠道癌上表达,并作为一种同型钙依赖性细胞粘附分子发挥作用。该抗原正被用作人类癌免疫治疗的靶点。该基因突变导致先天性丛生性肠病。
This gene encodes a carcinoma-associated antigen and is a member of a family that includes at least two type I membrane proteins. This antigen is expressed on most normal epithelial cells and gastrointestinal carcinomas and functions as a homotypic calcium-independent cell adhesion molecule. The antigen is being used as a target for immunotherapy treatment of human carcinomas. Mutations in this gene result in congenital tufting enteropathy.
