The density of CR1, the C3b/C4b receptor (CD35), on erythrocytes (E) (CR1/E) is genetically determined. However, the broad distribution of CR1/E within a given genotype suggests that other genetic elements might contribute to the regulation of CR1/E. In some pathological conditions, including systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), AIDS and hemolytic anemia,(More)
BACKGROUND Four amino-acid-changing polymorphisms differentiate the blood group A and B alleles. Multiple missense mutations are associated with weak expression of A and B antigens but the structural changes causing subgroups have not been studied. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS Individuals or families having serologically weak B antigen on their red cells were(More)
A new high-frequency red cell antigen has been identified and named GIL. GIL differs from all high-frequency antigens included in the International Society of Blood Transfusion classification. There is very little family information and GIL has not been shown to be an inherited character. Five women with anti-GIL have been found. All had been pregnant at(More)
