Disruption of desmosomal cadherin adhesion leads to the activation of intracellular signaling pathways that are responsible for blister formation in pemphigus vulgaris (PV). Recent studies corroborate the implication of the p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase in PV blistering via its downstream effector mitogen-activated protein kinase activated protein kinase 2. These insights highlight the key role of cadherins in tissue homeostasis and are expected to change pemphigus management.
