Rh blood group, D antigen

RhD, Rh30
The Rh blood group system is the second most clinically significant of the blood groups, second only to ABO. It is also the most polymorphic of the blood groups, with variations due to deletions, gene conversions, and missense mutations. The Rh blood group includes this gene, which encodes the RhD protein, and a second gene that encodes both the RhC and RhE antigens on a single polypeptide. The two genes, and a third unrelated gene, are found in a cluster on chromosome 1. The classification of Rh-positive and Rh-negative individuals is determined by the presence or absence of the highly immunogenic RhD protein on the surface of erythrocytes. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

METHODS: RH4 and RH30 alveolar RMS (ARMS) cell lines were treated with crizotinib and then assessed by using proliferation, viability, migration and colony formation assays.
IgG Suppresses Antibody Responses in Mice Lacking C1q, C3, Complement Receptors 1 and 2, or IgG Fc-Receptors.
Heyman et al., Uppsala, Sweden. In Plos One, 2014
This is used clinically in Rhesus prophylaxis, where administration of IgG anti-RhD prevents RhD-negative women from becoming immunized against RhD-positive fetal erythrocytes aquired transplacentally.
Non-invasive prenatal testing using cell-free fetal DNA in maternal circulation.
Zhao et al., In Clin Chim Acta, 2014
In recent years, technical advances in the molecular analysis of fetal DNA (e.g., digital PCR and massively parallel sequencing (MPS)) has enabled the successful implementation of noninvasive testing into clinical practice, such as fetal sex assessment, RhD genotyping, and fetal chromosomal aneuploidy detection.With the ability to decipher the entire fetal genome from maternal plasma DNA, we foresee that an increased number of non-invasive prenatal tests will be available for detecting many single-gene disorders in the near future.

The RHD genotyping proved to be a necessary tool to characterise RHD alleles in donors phenotyped as D- or weak D to increase the transfusion safety in highly racial mixed population.

Ware et al., Houston, United States. In Am J Hematol, 2012
RHD homozygotes had nearly twice as many D antigen sites as hemizygotes. Expression of c or E antigens was associated with increased RBC D antigen expression, but presence of C or e antigens reduced expression.
