Example text

3,4 A blood group system consists of one or more antigens controlled by a single gene locus or by a complex of two or more very closely linked homologous genes with virtually no recombination occurring between them. Therefore, each blood group system is genetically discrete from every other system. 1). g. g. 006), and each antigen within the system also has a threedigit number. Thus, every antigen has a unique six-digit number. For example, the third antigen of the Kell system, Kpa, has the number 006003 and the more commonly used alphanumerical symbol, KEL3.

Some antigens are abundant on the red cells of adults but are present in lower quantity or absent on fetal red cells. One good example is a histo-blood group antigen, I, which is expressed on the internal structure of branched oligosaccharides of red cell glycoproteins and glycolipids. The enzyme responsible for the branching of the oligosaccharides is apparently not active in fetuses and young infants and only linear oligosaccharides are present on their red cells. Occasionally, adults have a rare phenotype in which their red cells lack I and these individuals produce anti-I.
