The Kell antigen system also known as Kell–Cellano system is a group of antigens on the human red blood cell surface which are important determinants of blood type and are targets for autoimmune or alloimmune diseases which destroy red blood cells. Kell can be noted as K, k, or Kp. The most commonly encountered antibody in the Kell blood group system is anti-K. It is the most immunogenic non-ABO antibody after anti-D, IgG in nature, and more frequency due to transfusion as opposed to pregnancy. It is implicated in acute and delayed hemolytic transfusion reactions. 10/12/2014 · People with anti-K antibody in their blood are most unlikely to come to any harm by it being there. The antibodies often disappear over time. If you were to require surgery, the anti-K antibody in your blood would be detected prior to the operation and blood without Kell.
Kell antigens are found on the surface of the cells that will become RBCs, so anti-K will destroy the progenitor cells before they even turn into red blood cells. Because the RBC precursors the progenitor cells do not have hemoglobin, less bilirubin is released. Anyone told they have the anti-kell antibody in their blood? Pregnant with twins, 10 weeks, and just found out I picked this up more than likely from a blood transfusion. It attacks the red blood cells of the babies so we need to be closely monitored.
Kell Null K 0 Phenotype 1. K0 is a silent Kell allele 2. When homozygous K0K0 inherited no Kell system antigens are expressed. 3. K x antigen expression is enhanced 4. Very rare 5. Develop antibodies against any or all Kell antigens and anti-Ku. Ku is an universal Kell antigen present on all cells except K0 cell, very difficult to find. I had blood taken at 11wks and was informed that I have anti kell antibodies in my blood which can cause problems for baby. Basically these antibodies can cause anaemia in baby called Haemolytic disease of the newborn - HDN and if the levels aren't monitored it can ultimately result in death. The Kell blood group can also trigger immune reactions. According to, "Antibodies that target Kell antigens can cause transfusion reactions and hemolytic disease of the newborn HDN. In the case of HDN, ABO and Rh incompatibility are more common causes. However, disease caused by maternal anti-ABO tends to be mild, and disease caused. Connie M. Westhoff PhD, SBB, in Transfusion Medicine and Hemostasis Second Edition, 2013. McLeod Syndrome. The McLeod phenotype, characterized by weak expression of RBC Kell system antigens and absence of Kx antigen, is encoded by the X-linked gene, XK.
05/03/2010 · It is so hard to find answers on this material. I assume that my first baby inherited the Kell gene from my husband and somehow either during pregnancy or post delivery got my baby's blood into my blood and that is how I developed the anti-body or if it's even rarer that I got it from my blood. Hi there, I'm in Australia and I'm 13 weeks pregnant with our second child, had the anti kell antibodies show up in my blood test, and have finally got my partner's blood test results back and he's kell positive. The anemia from anti-Kell isoimmunization seems to be a combination of destruction of early red blood cells and suppression of red blood cell production. Anti-Kell antibodies specifically inhibit red blood cell progenitors, as the antigen is characteristically expressed on immature red blood cells.
Failure to Monitor and Timely Treat Anti-Kell Antibodies Can Cause Serious Birth Injury Hemolytic Disease of the Newborn, also known as anti-Kell, is one of the most common causes of severe hemolytic abnormal blood diseases of newborns. I have type A Rh positive Anti K blood type. I am trying to find more information concerning the anti-K issue. From what little information I am able to gather it is linked to 2 recessive genes, the K is passed to the fetus from the father & during a fetomaternal bleed the fetus exposes the mother to the antigen in turn causing the mother to. anti-Kell Blood Group, Metallo-Endopeptidase KEL Antibodies. KEL encodes a type II transmembrane glycoprotein that is the highly polymorphic Kell blood group antigen.
10/12/2019 · Cause. Mothers who are negative for the Kell 1 antigen develop antibodies after being exposed to red blood cells that are positive for Kell 1. Over half of the cases of hemolytic disease of the newborn owing the anti-Kell antibodies are caused by multiple blood transfusions, with the remainder due to a previous pregnancy with a Kell. A milder reaction is caused by anti-k, anti-Kp a, anti-Kp b, anti-Js a, and anti-Js b. Hemolytic Disease of the Newborn: Can cause severe fetal anemia Kell isoimmunization is the third most common cause of HDN after Rh and ABO. 10/02/2015 · This video is about Anti Kell.
