ABO(H) BLOOD GROUPS Blood groups arising from two specific antigen–antibody systems located on red blood cells (RBCs) and platelets. fm Page 2 Thursday, October 25, 2007 5:17 PM 2 ABO(H) BLOOD GROUPS Biochemistry The ABH antigens are carbohydrates, the A and B determinants being found at the termini of the oligosaccharide chains of glycoproteins and glycolipids. , the anion transport protein (AE1 or Band 3). Because the ABH blood group antigens are not localized to a particular protein, the antigens are also found widely distributed in body tissues and occur in soluble form in secretions.
FAB L2 The cells are heterogeneous and the nuclei are irregularly shaped, often folded or indented with prominent nucleoli. The cytoplasm varies in quantity and may contain occasional azurophilic granules. FAB L3 (Burkitt Tumor Cells) The cells are large, homogeneous blasts with deeply basophilic cytoplasm containing prominent, well-defined vacuoles. The nucleus is regular, with prominent nucleoli. ” Lineages are based on patterns of expression rather than on the presence or absence of any single antigen, but several subgroups can be separated by further immunophenotype studies supplemented by studies of Ig and T-cell receptor gene patterns (Table 6).
Remaining cells have a proliferative defect.
