Experimental Protocol

Serum samples from 20 systemic lupus erythematosis patients were run on the Human Epigenome Microarray Platform V1.0 (HEMP; a single-color platform), in order to profile their autoantibodies against a library of post-translationally modified histone peptides. These 20 samples were randomly selected from a larger cohort previously profiled (data not shown) on the Utz Lab Whole Protein Autoantigen Array V2.0 (a single-color platform), where 14 were histone-reactive and 6 were histone-nonreactive. Control sera from 9 healthy adults and a positive control comprising a mixture of autoimmune sera with defined reactivities, were also run on HEMP V1.0. Together, these samples comprise the data appearing in Figures 1 and S1 (IgG and IgM isotype reactivity profiles, respectively), identifying IgG reactivity to 9 peptides that significantly distinguish histone-reactive from -nonreactive sera among 96 peptides profiled. For data appearing in Figure 5, serum samples from a total of 6 Balb/c mice, consisting of two treatment groups, NETs (Neutrophil Extracellular Traps) and NETs + CRAMP (cathelicidin-related antimicrobial peptide) were collected monthly over a 3-month period, along with a zero time point. These samples were compared with a positive control consisting of serum collected from a MLR/lpr mice exhibiting lupus-like symptoms, and a negative control with no serum. The 0, 1 and 2 month time points were profiled on the Utz Lab Whole Protein Autoantigen Array V2.0 and are shown in Figure 5A-B, while the 1 and 3 month time points were profiled on HEMP V1.0 arrays and shown in Figure 5E. All samples were run once with no replicates.
