Cell surface glycoprotein that plays a role in cell adhesion and in intracellular signaling. Receptor for E.coli Dr adhesins. Homodimer. Binding of E.coli Dr adhesins leads to dissociation of the homodimer. Found in adenocarcinomas of endodermally derived digestive system epithelium and fetal colon. Belongs to the immunoglobulin superfamily. CEA family. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
Protein type: Immunoglobulin superfamily; Membrane protein, integral
Cellular Component: basolateral plasma membrane; integral to plasma membrane
Molecular Function: identical protein binding; protein homodimerization activity
Biological Process: homotypic cell-cell adhesion; negative regulation of apoptosis
SS: The number of records in which this modification site was determined using site-specific methods. SS methods include amino acid sequencing, site-directed mutagenesis, modification site-specific antibodies, specific MS strategies, etc.
