Vitronectin shows complement-independent binding to isolated keratin filament aggregates.


Keratinocyte cell death, whether produced by skin disease or by physiologic apoptosis in normal skin, may result in formation of dermal keratin bodies, consisting mainly of keratin intermediate filament aggregates. Vitronectin, a multifunctional plasma and tissue glycoprotein, which inhibits the complement membrane attack complex and promotes cell… (More)
