Contact: Rheumatoid factors are auto-antibodies which bind the Fc portion of autologous immunoglobulin G molecules. Since the etiology of the production of such auto-antibodies is unclear, we try to match the amino acid and nucleotide sequences of their heavy chain third complementarity determining (CDRH3) and fourth framework (FRH4) regions to(More)
