OMIA:000122-9823 : Blood group system D in Sus scrofa (pig)

In other species: chicken , horse , aoudad , goat , mouflon , sheep

Categories: Haematopoietic system phene

Links to MONDO diseases: No links.

Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown

Considered a defect: 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.

Species-specific description: This system has at least 2 alleles.

Genetic engineering: Unknown
Have human generated variants been created, e.g. through genetic engineering and gene editing
