However, other studies using highly purified peripheral T4+,T8+, autologous rosette-forming cells, or T4+ and T8+ clones as targets in cytotoxicity assays showed almost no difference in killing between SLE and normal sera [85–87]. More definitive studies [79, 88] have shown that SLE sera-derived IgM antilymphocyte antibodies recognize different isoforms of the CD45 molecule (molecular mass ~200 Da). CD45 is pivotal in T-cell signaling during stimulation because it has protein tyrosine phosphatase activity [89, 90].
