The anti-Sa antibody is an autoantibody that Despres is equivalent to reported in 1994 in the serum of patients with rheumatoid arthritis. The target antigen (Sa antigen) was first found in the human spleen and then found in human placenta and rheumatoid synovium, which may be the normal tissue component of the human body. Analysis by immunoblotting technique showed that the molecular weight of Sa antigen in human spleen was 50 kD, while that of human placenta was 50 and 55 kD.
