ABO blood grouping is controlled by gene I, which has three alleles and show codominance, There are six genotypes. How  many phenotypes in all are possible.?

  • Six

  • Three

  • Four

  • Five

Answer

C.

Four

In ABO blood group system, inheritance of grouping is controlled by a single autosomal gene on chromosome-9 with three major alleles A, B and O) (IA, IB and Io). The ABO blood group system has at least 6 genotypes. On the basis of presence or absence of antigens and antibodies, 4 blood groups (phenotypes) have been differentiated, ie, A, B, AB and O blood groups.
