• CMAH genotyping survey for blood types A, B and C in purpose‐bred cats

    2 monthes ago - By Animal Genetics

    Summary
    In domestic cats, the AB blood group system consists of the three types A, B and C. Mismatches can cause acute hemolytic transfusion reactions and hemolysis of the newborn. As blood types B and C are inherited recessively to A, breeders need to know the genotype to predict blood types in offspring and avoid NI. Several CMAH variants have been described as being associated with the b and a c
    alleles, and different genotyping schemes exist. Here, we genotyped 2145 cats with the original SNV panel, including SNVs c.142G> A and ∆‐53, and our new scheme, with SNVs c.179G> T, c.268T> A...
