Sammanfattning

Glycolipids from the red cells of a rare blood group A subgroup individual, expressing the blood group A(3) phenotype with the classical mixed-field agglutination phenomenon, A(2(539G>A))/O(1) genotype, and an unusual blood group A glycolipid profile, were submitted to a comprehensive biochemical and structural analysis. To determine the nature of blood group A glycolipids in this A(3) phenotype, structural determination was carried out with complementary techniques including proton nuclear magnetic resonance (1D and 2D), mass spectrometry (MS) (nano-electrospray ionization/quadrupole time-of-flight and tandem mass spectrometry) and thin layer chromatography with immunostaining detection. As expected, total blood group A structures were of low abundance, but contrary to expectations extended-A type 2 and A type 3 glycolipids were more dominant than A hexaglycosylceramides based on type 2 chain (A-6-2 glycolipids), which normally is the major A glycolipid. Several para-Forssman (GalNAcbeta3GbO(4)) structures, including extended forms, were identified but surmised not to contribute to the classic mixed-field agglutination of the A(3) phenotype. It is proposed that the low level of A antigen combined with an absence of extended branched glycolipids may be the factor determining the mixed-field agglutination phenomenon in this individual.
