Absence of expression of class II major histocompatibility complex determinants on keratinocytes in bullous pemphigoid.

Abstract:

Aberrant expression of class II products of the major histocompatibility complex (HLA-D locus antigens) occurs on keratinocytes in several inflammatory dermatoses and on thyroid epithelial cells in autoimmune thyroiditis. The functional significance of aberrant HLA-D expression is unclear but it has been hypothesized that epithelial cells bearing these determinants may act as antigen-presenting cells for autoantigens. The aim of the present study was to investigate the pathogenesis of bullous...
