Rh-positive red cells (RBCs) that fail to agglutinate with commercial anti-D reagents by the tube method are considered to have the Du phenotype. The quantities of D epitopes on such RBCs have been measured previously in one kindred. The authors report on the number of D epitopes on Du RBCs of 23 unrelated individuals, as calculated by Scatchard's analysis. Cell-bound anti-D was measured by an automated antiglobulin consumption technique. On the average, RBCs of the Rh phenotype CcDue had a… CONTINUE READING
