is a homotypic, type 1 trans-membranous cell adhesion molecule with two
differentially spliced isoforms consisting of 3 or 4 Ig-like domains. A
GST fusion protein including the cytoplasmic region of short isoform
(CEACAM1-S) bound F-actin with a Kd of 7mM,
when assayed by actin
et al, 2001).
The actin binding site has been localised to 419-432:-
No obvious similarity
between this actin-binding region and others exist. The
cytoplasmic region of CEACAM1 also binds tropomyosin.
