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

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.

Im Focus: How to design efficient materials for OLED displays

For applications such as light-emitting diodes or solar cells, organic materials are nowadays in the focus of research. These organic molecules could be a promising alternative to currently used semiconductors such as silicon or germanium and are used in OLED displays. A major problem is that in many organic semiconductors the flow of electricity is hampered by microscopic defects. Scientists around Dr. Gert-Jan Wetzelaer and Dr. Denis Andrienko of the Max-Planck-Institute for Polymer Research have now investigated how organic semiconductors can be designed such that the electric conduction is not influenced by these defects.

The basic principle of the first light bulb, invented by Thomas Edison in the 19th century, was quite simple: Electrons – negatively charged particles – flow...

Im Focus: 'Nanochains' could increase battery capacity, cut charging time

How long the battery of your phone or computer lasts depends on how many lithium ions can be stored in the battery's negative electrode material. If the battery runs out of these ions, it can't generate an electrical current to run a device and ultimately fails.

Materials with a higher lithium ion storage capacity are either too heavy or the wrong shape to replace graphite, the electrode material currently used in...

Im Focus: Happy hour for time-resolved crystallography

Researchers from the Department of Atomically Resolved Dynamics of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg, the University of Hamburg and the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) outstation in the city have developed a new method to watch biomolecules at work. This method dramatically simplifies starting enzymatic reactions by mixing a cocktail of small amounts of liquids with protein crystals. Determination of the protein structures at different times after mixing can be assembled into a time-lapse sequence that shows the molecular foundations of biology.

The functions of biomolecules are determined by their motions and structural changes. Yet it is a formidable challenge to understand these dynamic motions.

Im Focus: Modular OLED light strips

At the International Symposium on Automotive Lighting 2019 (ISAL) in Darmstadt from September 23 to 25, 2019, the Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP, a provider of research and development services in the field of organic electronics, will present OLED light strips of any length with additional functionalities for the first time at booth no. 37.

Almost everyone is familiar with light strips for interior design. LED strips are available by the metre in DIY stores around the corner and are just as often...
