Abstract

Desmosomes are complex protein structures that function in cell adhesion. They play an important role in diseases such as metastatic cancer and cardiac diseases. Desmoglein2 and desmocollin2 are two such proteins in the desmosome that bind cells together. The aim of this research is to study the effect of desmoglein2 and desmocollin2 on fifty different migratory proteins in different types of epidermal cancer cell lines.
