Type XVII collagen (BP180), promotes adhesion of basal keratinocytes to epidermal basement membrane, and is the target of disease in patients with certain inherited or acquired blistering diseases. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to investigate IgA autoantibodies using recombinant BP 180 proteins against bullous pemphigoid in the sera of… (More)
