Summary of "An update on the Cartwright (Yt) blood group system."

This update of the Cartwright blood group system (George MR. Cartwright blood group system review. Immunohematology 2012;28:49-54) reports the addition of three new antigens. From 1956 until 2017, the Cartwright (Yt) blood group system consisted of two antigens, Yta and Ytb. Yta is a high-prevalence antigen, and its antithetical antigen, Ytb, shows much lower prevalence. In 2017, YTEG was identified, and, in 2018, the International Society of Blood Transfusion added high-prevalence antigens YTLI and YTOT. Cartwright antigens result from point mutations in the acetylcholinesterase gene on chromosome 7q. Little is known about antibodies against YTEG, YTLI, and YTOT. Discovery of these new antigens required plasma inhibition studies and molecular analysis for further characterization. Based on experience with Yta and Ytb, Cartwright antibodies have rarely demonstrated clinical significance; nevertheless, cases of in vivo hemolysis have been reported, suggesting that clinical significance should be interpreted on a case-by-case basis.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Erythrocyte isoantigens of the Rh (Rhesus) blood group system, the most complex of all human blood groups. The major antigen Rh or D is the most common cause of erythroblastosis fetalis.

A system of universal human blood group isoantigens with many associated subgroups. The M and N traits are codominant and the S and s traits are probably very closely linked alleles, including the U antigen. This system is most frequently used in paternity studies.

A blood group related to the ABO, Lewis and I systems. At least five different erythrocyte antigens are possible, some very rare, others almost universal. Multiple alleles are involved in this blood group.

A complex blood group system having pairs of alternate antigens and amorphic genes, but also subject to a dominant independently segregating repressor.

A group of dominantly and independently inherited antigens associated with the ABO blood factors. They are glycolipids present in plasma and secretions that may adhere to the erythrocytes. The phenotype Le(b) is the result of the interaction of the Le gene Le(a) with the genes for the ABO blood groups.
