In normal epidermis integrin expression is largely confined to the basal layer. However, during wound healing and in psoriatic lesions suprabasal expression is observed. Although the potential importance of suprabasal integrin expression in the pathogenesis of psoriasis has been established, the cause of suprabasal expression is unknown. We now describe changes in integrin expression that occur with time when normal human keratinocytes are grown on two types of dermal equivalent, de-epidermized… CONTINUE READING
