Hemidesmosomes: how much plakins do they need?
Freiburg, Germany. In Exp Dermatol, 06 Feb 2016
In stratified and pseudostratified epithelia, the structural components of hemidesmosomes belong to four protein families - plakins (the bullous pemphigoid antigen 1 (BPAG1) and plectin), integrins (α6β4), collagens (collagen XVII) and tetraspanins (CD151) (2).
Meiosis-specific RNA splicing in yeast.

The MER2 gene is transcribed in mitosis as well as meiosis; however, the transcript is spliced efficiently to generate a functional gene product only in meiosis.
