Heterozygosity for two novel null alleles of the KEL gene causes the Kell-null phenotype in a Japanese woman.


The Kell-null (Ko) phenotype is rare and it does not express the Kell antigens on erythrocyte membranes. Recently, several distinct missense and nonsense base substitutions in the coding region and the donor splice site of intron 3 were identified in the KEL gene in individuals with the Ko phenotype. We analysed both genomic DNA and cDNA sequences of the… (More)
