MNS System

  • Helmut Schenkel-Brunner


The MNS blood group system was discovered by Landsteiner & Levine in 1927. Originally represented by the allelic antigens M [192] and N [191] it was later expanded to include the newly discovered allelic characters S [265},312] and s [196], as well as U [319] (Table 9.1). In the course of further investigations a large number of low-frequency antigenic characters closely associated with the MNS system have also been described (Table 9.2).
