MNS System

  • Helmut Schenkel-Brunner


The MNS blood group system was discovered by Landsteiner and Levine in 1927. Originally represented by the antigens M [182] and N [183] it was later expanded to include the newly discovered characters S [243,285], s [186], and U [289] (Tab. 9.1). In the course of further investigations a large number of low-frequency antigenic characters have been described which are closely associated with the MNS system (Tab. 9.2).
