Characterization of Human RhCG and Mouse Rhcg as Novel Nonerythroid Rh Glycoprotein Homologues Predominantly Expressed in Kidney and Testis*
In mammals, the Rh family includes the variable Rh polypeptides and invariant RhAG glycoprotein. These polytopic proteins are confined to the erythroid lineage and are assembled into a multisubunitExpand

Molecular biology and genetics of the Rh blood group system.
The Rh (Rhesus) blood group system is the most complex of the known human blood group polymorphisms. The expression of its antigens is controlled by a two-component genetic system consisting of RHExpand

Rh Type B Glycoprotein Is a New Member of the Rh Superfamily and a Putative Ammonia Transporter in Mammals*
Ammonium transporters play a key functional role in nitrogen uptake and assimilation in microorganisms and plants; however, little is known about their structural counterpart in mammals. Here, weExpand

Molecular genetics of glycophorin MNS variants.
The antigens for the MNS blood group system are Glycophorins A and B (GPA,GPB), products of the GPA gene family. The existence of close to 40 variant phenotypes of this blood group system has beenExpand

  • 1997
The Rh (Rhesus) protein family is expressed mainly in cells of erythroid lineage and, currently, is thought to comprise Rh30 (RhD and RhCE) polypeptides and Rh50 glycoprotein. As multipass integralExpand

A novel Sta glycophorin produced via gene conversion of pseudoexon III from glycophorin E to glycophorin A gene
Stone (Sta) is a variant antigen carried on human erythrocyte MNSs glycophorins (GPSta) that are genetically associated with splicing mutations in GPA genes or with hybrid formation between GPA andExpand
