Phosphate and Minerals in Health and Disease

We're happy to provide to our readers the lawsuits of the Fourth overseas Workshop on Phosphate and different Minerals which used to be held in Strasbourg in the course of June 22-24, 1979.

11). Anti-A can be readily adsorbed onto and eluted from Ax cells. 003% of group A) [275] and as 1 in 40 000 [281]. GTA cannot usually be detected in Ax serum or red cell membranes [212,279–281]. H-transferase activity in Ax sera is low [281]. The molecular genetics of Ax reflects the heterogeneity of the serological phenotypes. The most common Ax allele (Ax01) has the A1 consensus sequence with 646T>A encoding Phe216Ile [212,261,293]. Twenty-one Ax alleles are listed in dbRBC; six of them (Ax01−Ax06) encode Phe216Ile [215].

Red cells from group A babies usually react only weakly with Dolichos lectin and may not be agglutinated at all by human anti-A1. 9 A1A2BO genotypes and serologically determined phenotypes. Genotype Phenotype A1/A1 A1/A2 A1/O A1 A2/A2 A2/O A2 B/B B/O B A1/B A1B A2/B A2B O/O O strong Sda antigen and Tn polyagglutinable red cells, regardless of ABO group (Chapters 31 and 33). A2 red cells have substantially higher expression of H antigen than A1 cells. 9). 1 A1- and A2-transferases (GTA1 and GTA2) and the genes that produce them A-transferase (GTA) isolated from sera or gastric mucosa of A1 individuals is more effective at converting group O red cells to A-active cells than that from A2 people [205– 208].

Sequencing of the ABO genes showed that the child had an ABO gene in which exon 6 (and, presumably exons 1–5) had the sequence of a B allele and exon 7 the sequence of an O1 allele. This hybrid gene had probably arisen in the germline of the mother as a result of crossing-over during meiosis. This B-O1 gene would encode an enzyme with GTA activity because O1 and A1 have an identical sequence in exon 7, the region encoding the catalytic site; the absence of 261delG in exon 6 of B origin enables translation of this active enzyme.
