secretor status

secretor status

The ability of an individual to secrete the water-soluble form of the ABO blood group ANTIGENS into body fluids. There is a genetically determined inability to secrete these antigens and those so affected are unduly susceptible to various bacterial and superficial fungal infections.

secretor status

an individual producing ABO BLOOD GROUP type antigen (including H-SUBSTANCE) in saliva, semen and other body secretions, due to the presence of at least one dominent allele of an autosomal gene. Such fluids can thus be typed, a useful fact in forensic examination.
