Sample text

In null phenotypes, the whole protein is absent from the membrane, usually as a result of a gene deletion or an inactivating mutation. When immunized, women with null phenotypes may make antibodies to a variety of epitopes on the blood group protein and these antibodies often have the ability to cause HDFN. Carbohydrate antigens, such as those of the ABO system, provide a further complexity to the genetics of red cell surface antigens. Carbohydrate antigens are not encoded directly by the blood group genes that control their expression.

Synthesis of oligosaccharide chains is regulated by transferase enzymes, which catalyse the transfer of monosaccharide residues from a nucleotide donor substrate to an acceptor substrate. These transferase enzymes are encoded by the gene that governs antigen expression. 1 D /d D+ D /D u D+ D u /d weak D+ reduced risk d /d D– anti-D D /d D+ at risk Four families demonstrating simple blood group inheritance and its relevance to HDFN, using the Rh D polymorphism as an example.
