OMIA 000117-9913 : Blood group system A in Bos taurus

In other species: chicken , turkey , pig , aoudad , goat , , sheep

Mendelian trait/disorder: yes

Mode of inheritance: Autosomal Co-Dominant

Considered a defect: no

Key variant known: no

Cross-species summary: Each blood group system consists of a set of blood types, each of which corresponds to a particular antigen (usually a glycoprotein) on the surface of red blood cells. The different types within a system are the result of the action of different alleles at a locus that usually encodes an enzyme that catalyses the creation of the feature of the glycoprotein unique to that type, e.g. the presence of a particular sugar at the end of a short chain of sugars.
