    12 Multiplex fluorescence immunohistochemistry was performed by incubating sections with 5% normal donkey serum (Jackson ImmunoResearch, West Grove, PA) for 1 hour, then overnight at room temperature using 0.5-5 μg/ml mixtures of immunocompatible antibodies (anti-human IgG, anti-human IgM and anti-CD31 (Leica Biosystems; NCL-L-IgG; NCL-L-IgM and PA0414); anti-C1q (Dako; A0136); anti-C4d (Biomedica; BIRC4D and anti-NFH (Aves Labs), followed by a 1 µg/ml mixture of appropriately cross-adsorbed secondary antibodies raised in donkey (Thermo Fisher, Waltham, MA; Jackson ImmunoResearch) and conjugated to one of the following spectrally compatible fluorophores: Alexa Fluor 488, Alexa Fluor 546, and Alexa Fluor 647.

    About SciScore

    SciScore is an automated tool that is designed to assist expert reviewers by finding and presenting formulaic information scattered throughout a paper in a standard, easy to digest format. SciScore checks for the presence and correctness of RRIDs (research resource identifiers), and for rigor criteria such as sex and investigator blinding. For details on the theoretical underpinning of rigor criteria and the tools shown here, including references cited, please follow this link.
