3. REVERSE TRANSCRIPTION 1. Take 500 ng total RNA in 10 µL water and add 1 µL of oligo(dT)15 primer. Heat the sample for 5 min at 65°C and cool at room temperature. 2. 6 µL AMV reverse transcriptase (15 units). Add the mix to the RNA samples. For multiple samples, a master mix should be prepared excluding the RNA, which has to be added at the end. 3. Incubate the samples at 45°C for 15–60 min. 4. Heat the samples at 95°C for 5 min and immediately cool on ice. The singlestranded cyclic DNA can be stored at –80°C if necessary.

2. Soak pads, filters, and membranes for 15 min in transfer buffer (for 1 L, use 50 mL 20X transfer buffer available, 849 mL distilled water, 1 mL antioxidant, and 100 mL methanol; if methanol is not available, the same volume of 200 proof ethanol can be substituted). 3. Disassemble gel sandwich and equilibrate gel for 5 min in transfer buffer at room temperature. 4. For one membrane, assemble transfer sandwich in the following order: negative electrode, pad, pad, filter, gel, membrane, filter, pad, pad, positive electrode.

Wash the cells one time as in step 4 and resuspend in 500 µL MACS buffer. 7. Set up the MACS column between the magnet and wash the column with 3 mL of MACS buffer. 8. Load the cells to the column, collect the flowthrough, and wash with 10 mL of MACS buffer. 9. Centrifuge the T lymphocytes at 300g for 5 min in the Sorvall tabletop centrifuge and discard the supernatant. 10. Resuspend the cells in an appropriate volume of RPMI-1640 containing 10% FBS and Pen-Strep. 2. ROSETTESEP T lymphocytes can be directly isolated from the SLE blood samples using this protocol.
