  1. Target antigen list of a select group of autoantibodies that were detected either at similar levels or with at least a 45% difference between synovial fluid (SF) and plasma (PL). The majority of the differentially expressed antibodies are raised in plasma; for example, apolipoprotein AII and cartilage oligomeric matrix protein (COMP) [Uniprot:P02652, Uniprot:P49747]. Only actinin alpha I targeted antibodies were detected at higher levels in SF within the 45% difference threshold [Uniprot:A1L0V1]. Six proteins to which mean antibody levels remained static between fluids have also been listed for comparison. The levels of antibodies against these proteins across individual patient samples are shown in Figure 2A and Figure 3C. STK10, serine/threonine kinase-10.
