[Molecular genetics and clinical application of Rh blood group system].

The Rh blood group system is one of the most complex and important systems known in humans. It has two homologous structure genes in tandem on 1p34.3-36.1 that encode Rh protein. The Rh protein is a membrane in red blood cell that has 12 transmembrane spans. Rh antigens have many variants; there are three genetic polymorphisms in the RhD-negative individual… CONTINUE READING
