Medical Definition of Abo antigens

1. A system of genetically determined antigens (proteins) located on the surface of the erythrocyte. The presence of these specific antigens gives a blood its unique properties. Because of the antigen differences existing between individuals, blood groups are significant in blood transfusions, maternal-foetal incompatibilities (erythroblastosis foetalis), tissue and organ transplantation.
