Those that are towards plakins are a characteristic feature (24).
However, autoantibodies against various targets can be found, including desmosomal proteins Dsg1 and Dsg3, plakin family proteins (periplakin, envoplakin, plectin, desmoplakin, and BP180), and the protease inhibitor alpha-2-macroglobulin-like antigen 1 (A2ML1) (3, 20, 23).
Adhesion between corneocytes is assumed to occur by the desmosome apparatus (corneodesmosome), composed of desmosomal cadherin, armadillo proteins, and plakins
. The CE, intercellular lipid lamellae, and corneodesmosome are essential for effective physical and water barrier functions in the epidermis.
Other molecules studied by  are plakins
, which represent a family of molecules which form the links between filaments, desmosomes, and hemidesmosomes and plectin is a cytolinker of this family.
