The two-color method originally described by Van Rood et al. (Van Rood, J. J., A. Van Leeuwen, and J. S. Ploen. 1976. Simultaneous detection of two cell populations by two-color fluorescence and application to the recognition of B-cell determinants. Nature (Lond.). 262: 795-797) for the typing of homologous leukocytic antibodies, D-region was used for the detection of antilymphocyte antibody (ALA) in systemic lupus erythematosus. In this method, surface immunoglobulin-bearing cells were identified with fluorescein isothiocyanate-labeled anti-immunoglobulin and nuclei of killed cells were stained with ethidium bromide. Therefore, cell type (T or B) of the target cells can be identified without fractionating them. ALA was detected in 87% of lupus sera and had a preferential reactivity with T cells. Its major immunoglobulin class was shown to be immunoglobulin (Ig)M.

Usage data is cumulative from August 2021 through August 2022.
Usage information is collected from two different sources: this site (JCI) and Pubmed Central (PMC). JCI information (compiled daily) shows human readership based on methods we employ to screen out robotic usage. PMC information (aggregated monthly) is also similarly screened of robotic usage.
Various methods are used to distinguish robotic usage. For example, Google automatically scans articles to add to its search index and identifies itself as robotic; other services might not clearly identify themselves as robotic, or they are new or unknown as robotic. Because this activity can be misinterpreted as human readership, data may be re-processed periodically to reflect an improved understanding of robotic activity. Because of these factors, readers should consider usage information illustrative but subject to change.
