pH: 8.00 Constituents: 0.3% Glutathione, 0.79% Tris HCl
Cadherin family member 4
Desmosomal glycoprotein 1
Pemphigus foliaceus antigen
FunctionComponent of intercellular desmosome junctions. Involved in the interaction of plaque proteins and intermediate filaments mediating cell-cell adhesion.
Tissue specificityEpidermis, tongue, tonsil and esophagus.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in DSG1 are the cause of palmoplantar keratoderma striate type 1 (SPPK1) [MIM:148700]; also known as keratosis palmoplantaris striata I. SPPK1 is a dermatoligical disorder characterized by thickening of the skin on the palms and soles, and longitudinal hyperkeratotic lesions on the palms, running the length of each finger.
Sequence similaritiesContains 4 cadherin domains.
DomainCalcium may be bound by the cadherin-like repeats.
