Haplotypes, genotypes, and phenotypes Although there are only two Rh gene loci, RHD and RHCE, the Fisher– Race theory of three loci, D/d, C/c, and E/e, is still appropriate for interpreting serological data because C/c and E/e represent different ­ mutation sites within RHCE. No conclusive evidence of recombination between D/d and C/c, C/c and E/e, or D/d and E/e has been found.

2 and 15), yet numerous ­individuals with these variants have been found who have made anti-D. Some partial D antigens, such as DVI, have distinctly weakened ­expression of those epitopes they have. Consequently, the terminology is ­misleading and a new terminology is required. 3 provides a list of some of the symbols currently used to describe D variants. Another type of D variant is DEL, in which the D is expressed so weakly it cannot be detected by conventional serological methods and requires special techniques, in particular adsorption and elution.

Below this are diagrammatic representations of Rh proteins, showing the N- and C-termini, the 12 membrane-spanning domains, and the six extracellular loops. The C/c and E/e polymorphisms are determined primarily by amino acid substitutions on the second and fourth (from the N-terminus) extracellular loops of the RhCcEe protein. Above: D+ haplotype. Below: D− (deletion) haplotype. Within the red cell membrane, the Rh proteins are associated with a glycoprotein called the Rh-associated glycoprotein (RhAG).
