  • It is thought that the Rh antigens may be important in maintaining normal erythrocyte membrane integrity. Despite their name, Rh antigens are serologically present only on human erythrocytes. Rh structural polymorphisms are known to reside within a family of nonglycosylated Mr 32,000 integral membrane proteins that can be purified by hydroxylapatite chromatography. Mr 32,000 integral membrane proteins were purified similarly from erythrocyte membrane vesicles prepared from rhesus monkeys, cows… CONTINUE READING
