The hemidesmosome (HD) is a cell-to-substrate adhesion apparatus found in stratified and complex epithelia. One of the putative cell-matrix adhesion molecules present in the HD is the 180-kDa bullous pemphigoid antigen (BP180), also termed type XVII collagen. In our previous study, using a monoclonal antibody (mAb) 1337, we have detected a 120-kDa collagenase-sensitive polypeptide in the HD fraction (Uematsu, J. and Owaribe, K. (1993) Cell Struct. Funct. 18, 588 (abstr.)). The present study was… CONTINUE READING
