Abstract

Dog corneas were studied by indirect immunofluorescence with antibodies specific for pemphigus and pemphigoid antigens, laminin, and type IV collagen. The distribution of these antigen was similar to that observed in other squamous epithelia and skin. This study provides further evidence for close immunochemical similarities between these tissues.
