Decreased anchoring-fibril antigens (AF1 and AF2) in basal-cell carcinoma


Basement-membrane-zone (BMZ) components are altered in basal-cell carcinoma (BCC). Electron microscopy has identified areas of normal, discontinuous, or absent BMZ components in human BCC [13, 15, 26]. In the present study, we used new monoclonal antibodies to the anchoring fibrils to study this component of the BMZ. Skin tumors of 11 patients with BCC (10… (More)
