The A2 allele has a single nucleotide deletion in exon 7 immediately before the position of the codon giving the instruction for termination of translation. This prevents translation termination at that position, resulting in a protein of extended length, which still has A-transferase activity, but is less efficient than the A1-transferase (Fig. 4). qxd 7/16/10 10:54 Page 28 28 || Chapter 3 H, the precursor of A and B An antigen called H is present on the red cells of almost everybody, but is expressed much more strongly on group O and A2 cells than on A1 and B cells.

It is likely that group O individuals are relatively resistant to severe malaria caused by Plasmodium falciparum infection. Almost nothing is known about the functions of ABO antigens, on red cells or elsewhere in the body. ABH antigens are very abundant on red cells. The ABH antigens contribute to the glycocalyx or cell coat, an extracellular matrix of carbohydrate that protects the cell from mechanical damage and attack by pathogenic micro-organisms. qxd 7/15/10 17:48 Page 33 The Rh blood group system CHAPTER 4 Introduction – Rh, not rhesus The Rh blood group system was discovered in New York in 1939, with an antibody in the serum of a woman who had given birth to a stillborn baby and then developed a haemolytic reaction as the result of transfusion with blood from her husband.
