Anti‐D (‐RH1) of the Rh blood group system is clinically important as it causes haemolytic transfusion reactions and haemolytic disease of the fetus and newborn. Although most people are either D+ orExpand
Blood group antibodies and their significance in transfusion medicine.
The discovery of almost universally present naturally occurring antibodies in blood plasma led to the discovery of the ABO blood group system which remains, more than 100 years later, the mostExpand
CD151, the first member of the tetraspanin (TM4) superfamily detected on erythrocytes, is essential for the correct assembly of human basement membranes in kidney and skin.
Tetraspanins are thought to facilitate the formation of multiprotein complexes at cell surfaces, but evidence illuminating the biologic importance of this role is sparse. Tetraspanin CD151 forms veryExpand
The presence of an RHD pseudogene containing a 37 base pair duplication and a nonsense mutation in africans with the Rh D-negative blood group phenotype.
Antigens of the Rh blood group system are encoded by 2 homologous genes, RHD and RHCE, that produce 2 red cell membrane proteins. The D-negative phenotype is considered to result, almost invariably,Expand
The VS and V blood group polymorphisms in Africans: a serologic and molecular analysis
BACKGROUND: VS and V are common red cell antigens in persons of African origin. The molecular background of these Rh system antigens is poorly understood.
The Fyx phenotype is associated with a missense mutation in the Fyb allele predicting Arg89Cys in the Duffy glycoprotein
The molecular basis of the three major alleles (Fya/Fyb/Fy) of the Duffy (FY) blood group system has recently been established but the Fyx phenotype associated with weak expression of the Fyb andExpand
Diagnostic accuracy of routine antenatal determination of fetal RHD status across gestation: population based cohort study
Objectives To assess the accuracy of fetal RHD genotyping using cell-free fetal DNA in maternal plasma at different gestational ages. Design A prospective multicentre cohort study. Setting SevenExpand
A Clinical Service in the UK to Predict Fetal Rh (Rhesus) D Blood Group Using Free Fetal DNA in Maternal Plasma
Abstract: Antenatal determination of fetal blood group is important in pregnancies with a significant risk of hemolytic anemia due to maternal alloimmunization. The International Blood GroupExpand
Effect of high throughput RHD typing of fetal DNA in maternal plasma on use of anti-RhD immunoglobulin in RhD negative pregnant women: prospective feasibility study
Objectives To assess the feasibility of applying a high throughput method, with an automated robotic technique, for predicting fetal RhD phenotype from fetal DNA in the plasma of RhD negativeExpand
