Thus, thrombocytopenia or hypercoagulable state is not associated with any blood group antigen
. However larger sample size and more rigorous analysis such as von Willebrand factor or blood serotonin level can shade more light in this area of research.
ACKR1 was identified as a blood group antigen
that was expressed on the human red blood cell surface in 1950 (22).
Expressed mainly in the intestinal tissue, the alpha-(1,2)-fucosyltransferase FUT2 plays an important role in the formation of the ABH tissue blood group antigen
in the intestine.
used long-range surface plasmon waveguides for capturing only blood group antigen
A on RBCs by immobilized Anti-A IgG via no comparative studies with Anti-B .
Prevalence of Diego blood group antigen
and the antibody in three ethnic population groups in Klang valley of Malaysia.
Among the secretor phenotype-positive rotavirus patients, no blood group antigen
nor P or G genotypes (in feces specimens) were significantly overrepresented.

," Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, vol.
In contrast, the A blood group antigen
, comprised of blood types A and AB, appears to be protective against diminished ovarian reserve.
The recent genome-wide association studies suggest that the "ABO" blood group antigen
enhances the general body inflammatory state.
In some instances, blood units are evaluated for the expression of additional minor blood group antigens
. It is standard practice, as an additional safety check, for hospital transfusion services to re-test the blood group antigen
status of blood units received into their inventory.
To the Editor.--Owing to the independent inheritance of the human leukocyte antigen (HLA) and blood group antigen
(ABO) systems, it is possible that a highly HLA-matched solid organ may be ABO incompatible.
Their study shows that cells from rare individuals (Ay 1 in a million) who produce excess of this blood group antigen
have dramatically reduced sensitivity to HIV infection.
