Carcinoembryonic antigen-related cell adhesion molecule 6 (CEACAM6)

Cell surface glycoprotein that plays a role in cell adhesion and tumor development (PubMed:2803308, PubMed:2022629, PubMed:1378450, PubMed:8776764, PubMed:11590190, PubMed:10910050, PubMed:14724575, PubMed:16204051). Intercellular adhesion occurs in a calcium- and fibronectin-independent manner (PubMed:2022629, PubMed:16204051).

Heterophilic interaction with CEACAM8 occurs in activated neutrophils (PubMed:8776764). Plays a role in neutrophil adhesion to cytokine-activated endothelial cells (PubMed:1378450).
