Since the first issue of TRANSFUSION in 1961, there has been a tremendous expansion in not only the number of blood group antigens identified but also in our knowledge of their biochemical basis, function, and more recently, associated DNA changes. As certain techniques became available, our ability to discover and elucidate blood group antigens and appreciate their contribution to biology became possible. In particular, Western blotting, monoclonal antibodies, cloning, and polymerase chain…

Molecular approaches to transfusion medicine in Polynesians and Maori in New Zealand
TLDR
Application of molecular method covering as many known variants as possible may help to improve the accuracy blood group genotyping and potentially conserve the routine requirements of transfusion centres.
ID CORE XT as a tool for molecular red blood cell typing
TLDR
This article provides an updated review of the ID CORE XT (Progenika Biopharma-Grifols, Bizkaia, Spain) that is one of the commercial DNA-based techniques available to genotyping of RBC antigens and provides a useful tool to increase the inventory of antigen-negative RBC units.
Molecular genetic analysis and structure model of a rare B(A)02 subgroup of the ABO blood group system.
The functional importance of blood group‐active molecules in human red blood cells
TLDR
Recent evidence suggesting the normal quality control system for glycoprotein synthesis is altered during the latter stages of red cell production raises the possibility that many of these low abundance blood group‐active proteins are vestigial.

Genetic basis of rare blood group variants
TLDR
When genotyping of blood group antigens replaces serology blood transfusions can be better adjusted between donor and recipient and the amount of (fatal) transfusion reactions will be further diminished.

Blood transfusions are critically important in many medical procedures, but the presence of antigens on red blood cells (RBCs, erythrocytes) means that careful blood-typing must be carried out prior

Biochemistry and Genetics of the ABO, Lewis, and P blood group systems.
TLDR
For only three blood group systems, namely ABO, Lewis, and P, is the chemical nature of the antigens unequivocally established, and this review will be primarily concerned with these systems.

This review overviews the current situation in this area and attempts to predict how blood group genotyping will evolve in the future.
The ABO blood group system: historical background
TLDR
Observations laid the foundation for the modern clinical practice of blood transfusion since it is the regular occurrence of the anti-A and anti-B antibodies that makes knowledge of the ABO blood groups of vital importance for safe transfusion.

TLDR
It was concluded from studies that a person’s serum cannot contain antibody for antigens present in his own erythrocytes, and a definite relationship between different kinds of human blood was revealed and subsequently developed into what is now known as the ABO blood-group system.
The ABO blood group system and Plasmodium falciparum malaria.
TLDR
A broad range of available evidence suggests that the origin, distribution, and relative proportion of ABO blood groups in humans may have been directly influenced by selective genetic pressure from P falciparum infection.
Probable assignment of the Duffy blood group locus to chromosome 1 in man.
TLDR
Evidence is presented that the Duffy blood group locus Fy, already believed to be linked to a congenital cataract locus4 Cae, is close to this uncoiler element Un, and that all three are probably on chromosome no. 1.
A human quantitative polymorphism related to Xg blood groups
TLDR
A sex-limited effect involving the Xg phenotype on the expression of 12E7 antigen is reported, which seems to be different antigenic determinants specified by different loci.

Also sprach Landsteiner – Blood Group ‘O’ or Blood Group ‘NULL’
TLDR
There was concurrence of all parties who were involved in the original dispute that it is proper to use the letter O for the blood group and not 0 or NULL.

TLDR
It was established that parasitized erythrocytes form rosettes more readily with red blood cells of A, B, or AB groups than with blood group O and this parasite-triggered RBC rosette formation is associated with the severity of clinical disease and with the development of cerebral malaria.
