Skin Bullous Pemphigoid Antibody

in derma video conrad says bullous pemphigoid can be due to antibody against desmoglien. isnt that wrong coz in step 1 i read bullous pemphigoid is antibody against hemidesmosome which has intermediate filament to Integrins. i think antibodies against desmoglien should be restricted to only pemphigus vulgaris as desmoglien is cadherin family of protien and cadherins only in desmosomes
please correct me where m missing!!
