Distribution of desmosomal components in the tissues of vertebrates, studied by fluorescent antibody staining.


In previous work we used immunofluorescent staining with specific antibodies to study the distribution of five desmosomal antigens in the epithelia of different vertebrate animals. We showed that all five antigens were present in all epithelia studied in human, bovine, rat, guinea pig, chick and frog (Rana pipiens) tissues. It was concluded that desmosomes… (More)
