Recombinant polymeric IgG anti-Rh: a novel strategy for development of direct agglutinating reagents.

Abstract

Anti-Rh alloantibodies are used in research and clinic laboratories to define the Rh antigenic profile of human blood samples. IgM anti-Rh antibodies directly agglutinate Rh-positive RBCs. Anti-Rh antibodies of the IgG isotype bind to Rh antigens with a higher intrinsic affinity than IgM and sensitize RBCs, but do not induce direct hemagglutination. The aim… (More)
