Linkage Relationships and Gene Mapping of Human Blood Group Loci

  • Marion Lewis
  • Teresa Zelinski
Part of the Blood Cell Biochemistry book series (BLBI, volume 6)


This chapter will detail the process and progress in blood group gene mapping and mention the associated problems that justify the Human Gene Mapping Workshop requirement that all gene assignments to specific chromosomes be considered provisional until confirmation by a second data set. In doing so, the terminologies employed will conform to the recommendations of the International Society of Blood Transfusion Working Party on Terminology for Red Cell Surface Antigens, hereafter referred to as ISBTWP (Lewis et al., 1990, 1991a), the Human Gene Mapping Nomenclature Committee, hereafter referred to as HGMNC (Shows et al., 1987), and the International Standard Cytogenetic Nomenclature (ISCN, 1978).
