Cytoskeleton: missing links found?

Curr Biol. 1996 Dec 1;6(12):1563-6. doi: 10.1016/s0960-9822(02)70772-0.

Abstract

The quest for the function of BPAG1, a major hemidesmosomal protein of skin keratinocytes, has led to the discovery of a group of protein isoforms derived from the same genomic locus that are involved in organizing and integrating cytoskeletal networks in sensory neurons.
