BACKGROUND The Gerbich blood group system antigens are carried on glycophorin C (GPC) and glycophorin D (GPD) and variants thereof. These glycoproteins have been expressed in a heterologous system to study the individual antigens and to determine whether Ana is antithetical to Ge2. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS cDNAs encoding GPC, GPD, GPC.Yus, GPC.Ge, GPC.Lsa… CONTINUE READING
