    ..Furthermore, autoantibody profiling raises a possible link between CD5+ B cell expansion, mitogenic stimulation, and autoantibodies associated with autoimmune complications observed in lupus and lupus-related disorders. ..

    ..The implications of a trans cleavage mode observed in these complexes on the organization of the V(D)J synaptic complex are discussed. ..
