March 16, 2011 (Wednesday) - Blood Groups


Today's lunchtime seminar was a refresher on blood groups: their inheritance and expression. Also was a reminder about the genetics and inheritance of blood groups, and a bit about exactly what the various blood groups actually are, and what the antigens do in the red cell. Some are membrane receptors, some are involved with trans-membrane transport, some are structural.
I like refresher sessions - it always helps to be reminded of stuff: it gets me thinking...
And as ever, the presentation is available in the archive.
