1

[True/False] Rh antibodies are produced before exposure to the antigen

False. Rh antibodies are produced AFTER exposure to the antigen

2

If an individual's RBCs possess one particular Rh antigen, the D antigen it is Rh+ or Rh-

Rh+

3

The combination of maternal and paternal haplotypes determines one's _______?

genotype

4

According to Fisher-Race terminology, placing parenthesis around (D), (C), and (e) indicates?

weakened antigen expression

5

What is the shorthand designation of Rh0rh'hr'' ?

DCe

6

What is the shorthand designation of hr'rh'' ?

cE

7

RH genes are found on which chromosome?

Chromosome 1

8

Rh antigens are what type of protein?

Non-glycosylated protein

9

List Rh antigens in order of immunogenecity

D>c>E>C>e

10

Which Rh type would have the possibility to fall under C in Trans to RHD resulting in a weakened expression of the D antigen? Dce/dCE or DCe/dce?

Dce/dCE because the capital C is on the opposite haplotype to the allele carrying Rh.
