DSG3

A gene on chromosome 18q12.1 that encodes desmoglein 3, a component of intercellular desmosome junctions, which is involved in the interaction of plaque proteins and intermediate filaments mediating cell–cell adhesion. It is expressed in the epidermis, tongue, tonsil and oesophagus.

Molecular pathology
Desmoglein 3 is the antigen targeted in the autoimmune blistering disease pemphigus vulgaris.

Twin-screw extrusion of swelled PVA blends was conducted using a Hakke PolyLab QC Rheometer and a co-rotating twin-screw extruder (model Rheomex OS PTW16, screw diameter (D) =16 mm, length to diameter ratio (L/D) = 40) with screw speed of 30 rpm and retention time of 8 min.
The tensile strength, Young's modulus, and elongation at break of PVA films were tested by extension measurements at room temperature using a tensile tester (Instron 5567).
Recognizing the precarious future of PVA after losing its Eastern Chapter in 2000, and wary of the national economic downturn that marked the beginning of the new millennium, Homer was determined to be a part of the solution, not a contribution to the struggle.
First, PVA was washed several times with distilled water until a pH of 7 was achieved and then dried at 60[degrees]C in a vacuum oven.
The tensile strength and elongation at break of PVA films were tested by extension measurements at room temperature using a tensile tester (Instron 5567).
MDI-multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) were dispersed in DMSO (20 ml) by ultrasonic agitation for 3 h (sonicator: KQ-500TBD, sonication frequency was 80 Hz, and energy was 500 W) forming a suspension, and then they were introduced dropwise into a solution of PVA (500 mg) and DBTDL (10 mg) in 30 ml DMSO at 90 [degrees] C under nitrogen atmosphere with vigorously stirring.
PVA chips were thoroughly washed with distilled water to remove impurities such as sodium acetate.
The main objective of this study is to investigate the properties of the blends of PA6 and PVA with different degrees of hydrolysis.
Theses properties have led to its broad industrial use and the PVA properties can be improved or modified by importing other composite [6].
