Pretreating DCs from SLE patients with C4 copy numbers <4 with complement C4 promotes T lymphocytes differentiation. Pre-incubated DCs (from SLE patients with C4 copy numbers <4) with 500 μg/ml complement C4 for 48 h, and then incubated with T lymphocytes for 7 days. a Flow Cytometer was used to determine the CD4+CD25+FOXP3+Treg percentage; b the statistical result of Flow Cytometer was shown; c TGFβ concentration of cells was determined by ELISA kit; **p < 0.01 vs control
