Gene: CTAG1A (cancer/testis antigen 1A) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CTAG1A
Name: cancer/testis antigen 1A
Description: The protein encoded by this gene is a tumor cell antigen found in various types of cancers, which makes it a good candidate for a cancer vaccine. This gene is also highly expressed in normal ovary and testis tissues. An identical copy of this gene is found on the same chromosome. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2015]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: autoimmunogenic cancer/testis antigen NY-ESO-1; cancer/testis antigen 1; cancer/testis antigen 1-A; cancer/testis antigen 6.1; CT6.1; CTAG1B; ESO1; l antigen family member 2; LAGE-2; LAGE2A; New York Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma 1; NY-ESO-1
