Description

The Blood Group Antigen FactsBook — winner of a 2013 Highly Commended BMA Medical Book Award for Internal Medicine — has been an essential resource in the hematology, transfusion and immunogenetics fields since its first publication in the late 1990s.The third edition of The Blood Group Antigen FactsBook has been completely revised, updated and expanded to cover all 33 blood group systems. It blends scientific background and clinical applications and provides busy researchers and clinicians with at-a-glance information on over 330 blood group antigens, including history and information on terminology, expression, chromosomal assignment, carrier molecular description, functions, molecular bases of antigens and phenotypes, effect of enzymes/chemicals, clinical significance, disease associations and key references.

    SECTION III: Other Useful Facts

    Section III. Other Useful Facts

    Usefulness of the effect of enzymes and DTT on antigens in antibody identification

    Effect of acid on antigen expression

    Effect of chloroquine diphosphate on antigen expression

    Substrate specificity of selected enzymes for peptide and CHO bonds

    Mixed Field Agglutination may be observed in:

    Blood group antigens absent (altered) on selected RBC phenotypes

    Biosynthetic pathways

    Antigens with lactosylceramide as a precursor

    High prevalence antigens absent (and selected phenotypes) in certain ethnic populations

    Low-prevalence antigens present in certain ethnic populations

    Clinical significance of some alloantibodies to blood group antigens

    Characteristics of some blood group alloantibodies

    Antigen-negative prevalence for some polymorphic antigens

    Potentially useful information for problem-solving in immunohematology

    Alloantibodies that may have in vitro hemolytic properties

    Conditions associated with suppression (sometimes total) or with alteration of antigen expression

    Causes of apparent in vivo hemolysis

    Target antigen suppression

    Drugs associated with immune hemolytic anemia and/or positive DAT in which drug-dependent antibodies were detected

    Drugs associated with cases of immune hemolytic anemia and/or positive DAT caused by drug-independent antibodies (autoantibodies)

    Drugs associated with the detection of non-immunologic protein adsorption onto RBCs

    Blood group systems and their gene products

    Proteins altered on Rhnull RBCs

    Blood Group Proteins, Mr, abundance, and selected reactive monoclonal antibodies (MAbs)

    Changes in numbering of nucleotides and amino acids

    Some causes of pseudo-discrepancies between genotype and phenotype

    Chromosomal location of genes encoding or influencing the expression of blood groups

    Some lectins and their simple specificities

    Polyagglutination types, and the expected reactions with group O^ RBCs and lectins

    The Blood Group Antigen Facts Book

    We have the previous edition and wanted to have the updated edition. We use the book to help resolve antibody issues often. It is the favorite resource book when trying to resolve antibodies that are acting atypically.

    Excellent Book for Advanced Blood Bankers

    The Antigen Facts Book is a must have for anyone interested in pursuing their SBB certification. It has great information and is organized in a way that is easy to use.
