Gene References into Functions
  1. Among the weak D phenotypes in Tunisia, no novel RHD allele was found and almost 90% were caused by alleles of the weak D Type 4 cluster, of which 88% represented the weak D Type 4.0 allele. Based on established RH haplotypes for variant RHD and RHCE alleles and the lack of adverse clinical reports, we recommend D+ transfusions for patients with weak D Type 4.0 in Tunisia. PMID: 29193104
  2. study 94.9% of the partial D samples revealed altered RHCE variant alleles and 5.7% of the samples with altered RHD allele predicted partial c, partial e and the lack of the high prevalence hr(B) and hr(S) antigens. PMID: 27111588

  4. The purpose of this study was to determine the diversity and frequency of RHD-CE genotypes, predicting partial antigens in patients with sickle cell disease and in African Brazilian donors in order to find, through the use of RH genotyping, more closely matched donors for sickle cell disease patients who are alloimmunised to Rh antigens.
