Characteristics Of O Blood Group
There are none: Blood groups have no relationship to personality, any more than one's zodiac sign actually does. During the 1990's, a single crook wrote a series of books claiming that blood group impacted general health, personality, best diet and so forth. It was totally made up. I'm sorry this came up. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Usually IgM: Normally occuring antibodies to ABO antigens are of the IgM type. Igg antibodies can form on stimulation. ...Read more
Glycoproteins!: Wikipedia actually has a pretty good article on this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ABO_blood_group_system A, B, AB, and O cells all begin the same, with the production of a molecule on the RBC (red blood cell) surface called H antigen. The genes coding for A or B blood group (or AB, if you have one of each) are actually just chemical modifications of this common H antigen. Pretty cool! ...Read more
If mothers blood group is rhs O neg and baby blood group is O positive what would the fathers blood group be?
Father's blood type: Father is O positive. In the A-B-O nomenclature, A and B and dominant and Rh + is dominant over Rh -. That means that the baby had to get an O allele from both mother and father and at least one Rh + allele from a parent. Mom is OO neg neg and that means that the father has to be OO pos neg or OO pos pos. Either way, the father is phenotypically O pos. ...Read more

ABO blood groups: Not sure i understand your question. Abo antigens are glycoproteins (sugar-like molecules) found on the surface of red cells. There are 4 common types: groups a, b, ab, and o. People with type a blood have antibodies against b. Those with type b have antibodies against a. Those with type ab don't have any antibodies at all, while those with type o have antibodies against both a and b. ...Read more
What's the signifigance of finding 53% of peripheral blood cd4+ / cd30+ dual positive cells in a cutaneous lymphoma panel? Is this a sign of ALCL?
Could be call MD Onc: The most common Cutaneous T cell lymphoma is mycosis fungoides, which are CD4+ but lacks CD30 early on. Once progressed, the CD4 may acquire CD30, and hence transform to a mimic of anaplastic large CD30 + lymphoma.That said, so is coexpression of 53% in blood is unusual for cutaneous CD30 lymphomas, which are CD4+CD30+ yet mostly confined in skin. Systemic forms may show in blood. Call HemeOnc MD ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: The genetics do not permit this.Get a more detailed answer ›
Group A and O: The different is one has blood group o+ - and the other has blood group a+. Group o has no antigen a and b, but has antibody to a and b. So, group o is a universal donor- and the blood can be given to people with different blood group. Group a has antigen a, and antibody b. So, can receive group a or o blood. Group o only can receive blood group o if needed any blood transfusion. ...Read more
A common condition: D+ is the most common rh finding. It is usually referred to as rh positive. It is not a situation that has any particular advantages or disadvantages other than testing for transfusion is needed. That is standard for all tranfusions. ...Read more
Genetics: Sickle cell disease is a condition caused by inheriting two copies (one from each parent) of a mutated beta-hemoglobin gene. Sickle cell disease does help lessen the symptoms of certain diseases like malaria, and this is why certain ethnic groups that lived at one time in malaria-prone regions of the world (such as africa) have a higher incidence of carrying the sickle cell gene. ...Read more
My father has a rare type of sickle cell that affects his WBC's instead of RBC's. Is there any information on this type of Sickle Cell Trait?
Get better info: Your dad may have a white cell disorder but it has nothing to do with sickle cell trait which is a specific red cell disorder. You need to consult with your day and find out the proper name for his disorder before we can comment. A doc may have compared it to sickle cell trait to try to explain it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can a female with Hb H disease marry someone with beta thalassemia trait? What are the possible results in terms of genetics percentages?
Sure: Anybody can marry anybody. Since HgbH disease involves the alpha genes and beta thal minor involves the beta genes, I would not be concerned. However, you might do well to be certain that neither partner carries the other person's trait as well masked by what's already diagnosed. Sit down with a competent clinical geneticist. ...Read more
Clarification: Are you asking what is the implication of having the sickle cell? A woman can have one gene for sickle cell and this makes her a carrier. Typically carriers who are heterozygous for the disease are asymptomatic. Or, she can have 2 genes (one from each of her parents) of the sickle cell gene and that typically will make her have sickle cell disease. I'm not sure if that answers your question? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
