Detection of A33 in HT‑29 Human Cell Line by Flow Cytometry. HT‑29 human colon carcinoma cell line was stained with Rat Anti-Human A33 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB3080, filled histogram) or isotype control antibody (Catalog # MAB006, open histogram), followed by Phycoerythrin-conjugated Anti-Rat IgG F(ab')2 Secondary Antibody (Catalog # F0105B).

Human A33, also known as GPA33, is a 43 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein that belongs to the CTX (cortical thymocyte marker in Xenopus) family of cell adhesion molecules within the immunoglobulin superfamily. Other family members include CXADR, ESAM, BT-IgSF, CD2 and JAM-A-C. The extracellular domain (ECD) of human A33 is 214 amino acids (aa) in length and contains one V-type and one C2-type Ig-like domain. This ECD is 80%, 74% and 71% aa identical to canine, bovine and mouse A33 ECD, respectively. A33 is likely to be involved in cell-cell adhesion between epithelial cells.
