In this study we followed the effects of various differentiating agents on the expression of carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) released into the medium by a colon carcinoma cell line HT-29. Butyric acid 1 mM markedly increased the level of CEA (12-fold in comparison to control levels). 12-O-tetradecanoyl-phorbol-13-acetate (TPA) 50 ng/ml and 5-azacytidine 4 x 10(-6) M increased the amount of CEA, 2- and 1.5-fold respectively. On the other hand retinoic acid 10(-5) M, N methyl-formamide 1% and N,N hexamethylene bisacetamide 2.5 mM decreased CEA 2-, 4- and 3-fold respectively. Our results emphasize that various differentiating agents affect CEA levels differently. Thus changes in CEA levels appear not to be reliable as a marker of a more differentiated phenotype.
