Human epidermal keratinocytes are one of the few cell types that express the beta1B splice variant of the beta1 integrin subunit. Although in transfection experiments beta1B acts as a dominant negative inhibitor of cell adhesion, we found that beta1B was expressed at very low levels in keratinocytes, both in vivo and in culture, and had a predominantly… CONTINUE READING
