Technical Data
B2125-28H
Blood Group Lewis y (FUT3, Lewis Y Blood Group)
Description:
Blood group related antigens represent a group of carbohydrate determinants carried on both glycolipids and glycoproteins. They are usually mucin-type, and are detected on erythrocytes, certain epithelial cells and in secretions of certain individuals. Sixteen genetically and biosynthetically distinct but inter-related specificities belong to this group of antigens including A, B, H, Lewis A, Lewis B, Lewis X, Lewis Y and precursor type 1 chain antigens. Increased expression of Lewis B has been reported in gastric and pancreatic tumors as well as in colorectal cancer.
