• Official Full Name

    activated leukocyte cell adhesion molecule

  • Overview

    This gene encodes activated leukocyte cell adhesion molecule (ALCAM), also known as CD166 (cluster of differentiation 166), which is a member of a subfamily of immunoglobulin receptors with five immunoglobulin-like domains (VVC2C2C2) in the extracellular domain. This protein binds to T-cell differentiation antigene CD6, and is implicated in the processes of cell adhesion and migration. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found.
  • Synonyms

    ALCAM; activated leukocyte cell adhesion molecule; MEMD; CD166; CD166 antigen; FLJ3851; FLJ38514; MGC71733;
