Specific attachment of desmin filaments to desmosomal plaques in cardiac myocytes.

Abstract

Intercellular junctions which are similar in ultrastructure and protein composition to typical desmosomes have so far only been found in epithelial cells and in heart tissue, specifically in the intercalated disks of cardiac myocytes and at cell boundaries between Purkinje fiber cells. In epithelial cells the cytoplasmic side of desmosomes, the 'desmosomal… (More)
