Identification of bullous pemphigoid, pemphigus, laminin, and anchoring fibril antigens in human fetal skin.


Human fetal skin was evaluated for sequential and regional development of several epidermal antigens. Indirect immunofluorescent methods were used to detect laminin, bullous pemphigoid antigen, pemphigus antigen, and anchoring fibril antigens identified by monoclonal antibodies AF1 and AF2. Eighty-three human fetal skin biopsies from 32 human fetuses were… (More)
