Hemidesmosomes are mainly called as anchoring junctions between the basal lamina and the bases of epithelial cells. Ultrastructurally, they resemble a single-sided desmosome, anchored on one side to the plasma membrane, and on the other to the adjacent collagen fibrils and basal lamina. Hemidesmosomes use integrins as their adhesion molecules.
 
Hope you got the answer.
