Integrin alpha6beta4-mediated adhesion interactions play key roles in keratinocyte and epithelial tumor cell biology. In order to evaluate how alpha6beta4 adhesion interactions contribute to these important cellular processes, the authors generated soluble versions of the integrin by recombinant expression of the subunit ectodomains fused to a human(More)
Human IgG4 subtype antibodies have often been reported to have a significant portion (5-50%) of a heavy chain-light chain dimer ("half-antibody") on sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE), in which the heavy chain is not covalently linked through the hinge disulfides to another heavy chain. We demonstrate here that there can be(More)
