Although present in many tumours, the mechanism of formation and the significance of the so-called 'cytoplasmic desmosome' (CD) remain speculative. Recently, we reported an in vitro model for the induction of CD in rat keratinocytes following acrylamide treatment. In the present study and based on quantitative and qualitative evidence, CD could be divided… CONTINUE READING
