ISBT blood group system

The international Society of Blood Transfusion (ISBT) defines 36 blood group systems. These blood group systems mostly come from variations in glycosylation patterns or from single nucleotide polymorphisms. The table below indicates the protein availability in RESPIRE (R) or a direct link to genecards otherwise (G).
