ACKR1 was identified as a blood group antigen
that was expressed on the human red blood cell surface in 1950 (22).
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 .
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.
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.
In contrast, the A blood group antigen
, comprised of blood types A and AB, appears to be protective against diminished ovarian reserve.
The expression of blood group antigen
alters during the process of cell differentiation and malignancy.
Therefore success of blood transfusion requires compatibility of two main blood group antigen
systems, ABO and Rh.
Expression of the H type 1 blood group antigen
during enterocytic differentiation of Caco-2 cells.
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.
5] This discovery suggested that individuals with the A blood group antigen
may be more susceptible to H.
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.
