Rh gene

Rh gene

Any of eight allelic genes that are responsible for the various Rh blood types. They have been designated as R1, R2, R0, Rz, r, r′, r″, and ry. Genes represented by small r's are responsible for the Rh-negative (Rh) blood type; those by capital R's, for the Rh-positive (Rh+) blood type.

We would like to emphasize that comparing these observations in humans and pigs may not be appropriate, since pigs have a single RH gene, no polymorphism in the coding region of the gene has been identified and therefore, it does not appear to represent a blood group antigen for pigs [41].

ABO and Rh gene phenotypes vary widely across races and geographical boundaries despite the facts that the antigens involved are stable throughout the life.
RHD gene (BN000065) is a part of RH gene located on chromosome 1, and consisting of 10 exons and 10 introns.
ABO blood groups are determined based on a locus on chromosome 93/4the Rh gene is on the first chromosome (1).
For a meaningful grouping of these populations, homogeneity tests for ABO and Rh gene frequencies were carried out (Neel and Schull, 1954; Shami and Rasmuson, 1994).
Subsequently, for a meaningful grouping of populations and to identify uniform clusters among them, homogeneity tests were conducted for ABO and Rh gene frequencies (Neel and Schull, 1954).

Blood groups are genetically determined and the incidence of ABO and Rh genes and their phenotypes vary widely across races and geographical boundaries, despite the fact that the antigens involved are stable throughout life.
