Cell/cell and cell/matrix adhesion proteins are responsible for maintaining the integrity of the mucosal lining of the oral cavity. Disease processes that destroy keratinocytes or adversely affect their adhesion to one another or to the subjacent basement membrane will result in erosions, ulcerations, and desquamations. Immunologic processes that have a deleterious effect on the integrity of the epithelial/basement membrane/submucosa complex are reviewed, and current research findings with… CONTINUE READING
