To examine the potential of cytoplasmic portions ("tails") of desmosomal cadherins for assembly of desmosome plaque structures and anchorage of intermediate filaments (IFs), we transfected cultured human A-431 carcinoma cells, abundant in desmosomes and cytokeratin IFs, with constructs encoding chimeric proteins in which the transmembranous region of connexin 32 had been fused with tails of desmocollin (Dsc) or desmoglein (Dsg). The results show that the tail of the long splice form a of Dsc… Expand
