Blood Group, Kidd System; Jk

Description

The Kidd blood group locus encodes a urea transporter (SLC14A1) that is expressed on human red cells and in the kidney. The Kidd blood group system (Jk) is defined by 2 alleles, Jk(a) and Jk(b), whose products were first identified with alloantibodies responsible for haemolytic disease of the newborn or transfusion reactions (summary by Olives et al., 1997).
