Blood group--Lutheran system

Common Name(s)

Blood group--Lutheran system

Lutheran is a complex blood group system consisting of 19 antigens numbered from LU1 to LU21, with 2 numbers (LU10 and LU15) declared obsolete. Four pairs of these antigens have allelic relationships: LU1/LU2, also known as Lu(a)/(b); LU6 and LU9; LU8 and LU14; and LU18/LU19, also known as Au(a)/(b) ({4:Karamatic Crew et al., 2007}). Although the Au(a) antigen was found by {6:Salmon et al. (1961)}, the antithetical antigen, Au(b), was not found until 1989 ({3:Frandson et al., 1989}). {1:Daniels et al. (1991)} showed that the Au(a) and Au(b) antigens belong to the Lutheran system. For a discussion of Lutheran blood group phenotypes, see {247420}.
