Characterization of feline blood group antigens.


Feline blood group antigens are of clinical importance in veterinary medicine due to their role in hemolytic transfusion reactions in cats and neonatal isoerythrolysis in kittens. The objectives of this project were to produce and characterize monoclonal antibodies specific for the feline erythrocyte A and B antigens, and to use these antibodies to further investigate the expression of the A and B antigens on erythrocytes of blood type A, B and AB cats.
