Gene information for EPCAM (Homo sapiens)
(Information is obtained from NCBI Gene database)
Entrez gene ID4072
Official gene symbolEPCAM
Full nameepithelial cell adhesion molecule
Gene summaryThis gene encodes a carcinoma-associated antigen and is a member of a family that includes at least two type I membrane proteins. This antigen is expressed on most normal epithelial cells and gastrointestinal carcinomas and functions as a homotypic calcium-independent cell adhesion molecule. The antigen is being used as a target for immunotherapy treatment of human carcinomas. Mutations in this gene result in congenital tufting enteropathy. [provided by RefSeq]
