Sid and Cad

  • Helmut Schenkel-Brunner


The Sid antigen Sd a (ISBT Nr. 901 012) is inherited as a dominant autosomal character [32,45]. It is not confined to red cell membranes but also occurs in different tissues and body secretions. In about 96% of humans this specificity is present on erythrocytes and/or in secretions; 4% lack Sd a activity and contain anti-Sd a in their serum [38].
