E-cadherin is an additional immunological target for pemphigus autoantibodies.
Pemphigus foliaceus (PF) and pemphigus vulgaris (PV) are autoimmune blistering diseases characterized by autoantibodies against desmoglein (Dsg)1 and Dsg3, respectively. The role of classicalExpand

The IgM anti-desmoglein 1 response distinguishes Brazilian pemphigus foliaceus (fogo selvagem) from other forms of pemphigus.
Fogo selvagem (FS) and pemphigus foliaceus (PF) possess pathogenic IgG anti-desmoglein 1-(Dsg1) autoantibodies. Although PF occurs sporadically, FS is endemic in Limao Verde (LV), Brazil (3.4%Expand

IgG4 autoantibodies are inhibitory in the autoimmune disease bullous pemphigoid.
The IgG4 subclass of antibodies exhibits unique characteristics that suggest it may function in an immunoregulatory capacity. The inhibitory function of IgG4 has been well documented in allergicExpand

Pathogenic IgG4 autoantibodies from endemic pemphigus foliaceus recognize a desmoglein-1 conformational epitope.
Fogo Selvagem (FS), the endemic form of pemphigus foliaceus, is mediated by pathogenic IgG4 autoantibodies against the amino-terminal extracellular cadherin domain of the desmosomal cadherinExpand

Desmosomal Proteins as Autoantigens in Pemphigus
Pemphigus is a group of rare autoimmune blistering skin diseases mediated by autoantibodies against desmosomal members of the cadherin superfamily. There are several variants of pemphigus, each withExpand
