Welcome to the CEA family home page.
Since the discovery of CEA in 1965, a great deal of data has been collected concerning this interesting family of proteins in different species. Many areas of research have been brought together through the CEA family, including basic and applied oncology, pregnancy studies, virology, bacteriology, evolutionary studies, etc.
As those of you who work in this field know only too well, a great deal of confusion has arisen concerning nomenclature. Furthermore, the functions of CEA family molecules are still hotly disputed. Apart from helping to clarify nomenclature problems this site can give up-to-the-minute information.
The overall aim of this site is to summarize all members of the CEA family of the species investigated.
