Antibodies against human CEACAM1 - Monoclonal antibodies for the detection of A1/B-domains of the cancer-implicated adhesion-receptor-molecule CEACAM1

26.10.2011

The present invention relates to antibodies that exhibit a high affinity and specificity for the A1/B-domains of CEACAM1. Commercial Opportunities CEACAM1 is an adhesion receptor molecule implicated in growth regulation and the development of cancer. It belongs to the family of carcinoembryonic antigens which forms a part of the immunoglobulin superfamily (IgSF). CEACAMs play a central role with respect to cell adhesion, differentiation, activation, proliferation, morphogenesis and apoptosis as well as receptors for various pathogens (e. g. bacteria). CEACAMs are structurally closely related: they feature the function triggering N-domain and a C-domain consisting of A- and B-domains. Due to the structural similarity it is very challenging to obtain antibodies against specific CEACAM1-domains. CEACAM1 has been detected at elevated levels in the surrounding tissue of tumors and the tumors themselves. It appears that CEACAM1 is a suitable biomarker for the diagnosis and staging of tumors. The present invention relates to antibodies that exhibit a high affinity and mono-specificity for the A1/B-domains of human CEACAM1. Thus, they are suitable to detect the membrane anchored, the cleaved soluble CEACAM1 and most of its derivatives and may be used in various in-vitro techniques in cancer research, e.g. ELISA, WB, IHC, fluorescence microscopy and flow cytometry.

Results reveal how discoveries may be hidden in scientific “blind spots”

Cells need to repair damaged DNA in our genes to prevent the development of cancer and other diseases. Our cells therefore activate and send “repair-proteins”...

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...
