Example text

Although the D-positive/D-negative polymorphism is relatively straightforward, there are numerous complexities involving D antigen expression. In the weak D phenotype (previously called Du), all epitopes of D are expressed weakly and these individuals do not produce anti-D when transfused with red cells with normal D expression. 23 Partial D phenotypes are D-positive phenotypes in which a few or many epitopes of D are not expressed. This loss of epitopes may be due to amino acid substitutions in extracellular domains of the D protein or to the product of hybrid RHD genes, in which a segment of the gene is replaced by the homologous segment derived from RHCE.
