Determination of the molecular nature of the Vel blood group by exome sequencing

The genetic basis of the Vel group is yet to be determined. We have collected DNA samples from about 90 Vel negative blood donors by phenotyping 270,000 donors. Understanding the genetic basis of the Vel group could have clinical significance as transfusion of Vel positive blood to Vel negative recipients with anti-Vel can cause severe and acute haemolytic transfusion reactions.
