Sammanfattning

The x(2) glycosphingolipid is expressed on erythrocytes from individuals of all common blood group phenotypes and elevated on cells of the rare P/P1/P-k-negative p blood group phenotype. Globoside or P antigen is synthesized by UDP-N-acetylgalactosamine: globotriaosyl-ceramide 3-beta-N-acetylgalactosaminyl-transferase encoded by B3GALNT1. It is the most abundant non-acid glycosphingolipid on erythrocytes and displays the same terminal disaccharide, GalNAc beta 3Gal, as x(2). We encountered a patient with mutations in B3GALNT1 causing the rare P-deficient P-1(k) phenotype and whose pretransfusion plasma was unexpectedly incompatible with p erythrocytes. The same phenomenon was also noted in seven other unrelated P-deficient individuals. Thin-layer chromatography, mass spectrometry, and flow cytometry were used to show that the naturally occurring antibodies made by p individuals recognize x(2) and sialylated forms of x(2), whereas x(2) is lacking on P-deficient erythrocytes. Overexpression of B3GALNT1 resulted in synthesis of both P and x(2). Knockdown experiments with siRNA against B3GALNT1 diminished x(2) levels. We conclude that x(2) fulfills blood group criteria and is synthesized by UDP-N-acetylgalactosamine: globotriaosylceramide 3-beta-N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase. Based on this linkage, we proposed that x(2) joins P in the GLOB blood group system (ISBT 028) and is renamed PX2 (GLOB2). Thus, in the absence of a functional P synthase, neither P nor PX2 are formed. As a consequence, naturally occurring anti-P and anti-PX2 can be made. Until the clinical significance of anti-PX2 is known, we also recommend that rare P-1(k) or P-2(k) erythrocyte units are preferentially selected for transfusion to P-k patients because p erythrocytes may pose a risk for hemolytic transfusion reactions due to their elevated PX2 levels.
