Blood Groups in Horses. Genetic Study

Genetic and mathematical studies enable us to state that the 18 horse blood factors belong to at least 8 genetic systems.

The A system contains 6 blood factors: A 1, F, H1, H2, I and O. The J system contains 4 blood factors: E, G, J1, and J2. The D system contains 2 blood factors: D1 and D2.

The blood factors C, K, Fr4 and Fr5 are bi-allelic.

A relationship exists between the blood factors Fr1 and Fr3.

The genes that determine the horse’s blood factors are located at at least 8 loci.
