Bullous pemphigoid and pemphigus vulgaris are blistering diseases. Our results show that expression of the integrins α6β4 α3β1is altered in both diseases: α6β4 to a greater extent in the former and α3β1 in the latter disease, respectively. Instead, the extracellular matrix examined resulted normally expressed.
