Gene frequencies of human platelet alloantigens 1-5 in two Arab populations.


BACKGROUND Polymorphisms of the human platelet alloantigens (HPA) arise from single base pair substitutions in alleles and lead to changes in amino acids of glycoproteins expressed on platelets. The aim of this study was to determine the gene frequencies of the five common HPA (HPA-1 to -5) in Egyptians and Jordanians and to compare these data with those… (More)
