Abstract

Blood group A substance was detected on red cells of a patient who had received a bone marrow transplant from a blood group 0 donor 3 1/2 years ago. All peripheral blood cells are of donor origin. Anti-A but not anti-A,B of blood group 0 individuals can be absorbed to the group 0 red cells of the patient. We suppose that the patient's residual serum A transferase attaches the appropriate sugar to H substance on the red cell membrane to form A substance.
