Abstract

The ABH and Lewis antigens are carbohydrate structures that occur on the surface of certain hemopoietic and epithelial cells and in many body fluids. The role of the ABO, Se, H, and Le gene loci and their glycosyltransferase products in determining the structures and the genetic polymorphisms of these terminal carbohydrate antigens has been reviewed in detail elsewhere (Oriol et al., 1986; Watkins, 1980). The biochemical pathways are shown in summary form in Figure 1.
