Multiple Alleic Traits are called when there is more than two possible alleles. One example of multi alleic traits is ABO blood type in human population. [6] There are three alleles for blood type, which are I A , I B and i. I A and I B are dominant to allele i. And these three possible alleles can produce four blood type in human population. I A I A and I A i make blood type A; I B I B and I B i make blood type B while only I A I B makes blood type AB and only ii makes blood type O. Both blood type A and B can be either heterozygous or homozygous, but blood type AB can be only heterozygous and blood type O can be only homozygous. Genotype I A I B of blood type AB is co-dominant because both dominant alleles, A and B, fully express their characteristic.

Multiple Alleic Traits are called when there is more than two possible alleles. One example ofantibodies antigens on their surfaces that matching to their blood group and in blood plasma that identify and combine with the antigen sites on the surfaces of red cells of another type. Antigens and antibodies are certain protein molecules presence in red blood cells. Antibodies are located in the blood plasma while antigens are in the surface of red blood cells. Antibody also can be called immunoglobulin. It is a protective protein in our immune system against the foreign antigens that come in our body. Each blood type is named by its antigen in red blood cells. For example, as in figure 1.1, blood type A contains A antigens, blood type B contains B antigens, blood type AB contains both, and blood type O contains neither. This means that blood type A contains B antibodies, blood type B contains A antibodies, blood type O contains neither, and blood type O contains both as in figure 1.2 . It is because A antibodies reacts with its corresponding antigen, which is A, and B antibodies reacts with B antigens. The reaction between red cells and corresponding antibodies usually results in clumping or agglutinating of the red cells. To do blood type testing, in this experiment, we can use agglutination tests, which is a method to check for certain antigens or antibodies. This method can show whether an individual has which blood type. Agglutination of red cells results from antibody cross-linkages established when different specific combining sites of one antibody react with antigen on two different red cells. This means that if anti-A antibodies react with A antigens, anti-B antibodies react with B antigens, and anti-AB antibodies react with both A and B antigens, blood clot will be formed. If testing with blood type O, nothing will change because blood type O does not contain any antigen. " id="pdf-obj-1-38" src="pdf-obj-1-38.jpg">

[4] Antibodies are located in the blood plasma while antigens are in the surface of red blood cells. Antibody also can be called immunoglobulin. [1] It is a protective protein in our immune system against the foreign antigens that come in our body.

Each blood type is named by its antigen in red blood cells. For example, as in figure 1.1, blood type A contains A antigens, blood type B contains B antigens, blood type AB contains both, and blood type O contains neither. This means that blood type A contains B antibodies, blood type B contains A antibodies, blood type O contains neither, and blood type O contains both as in figure 1.2. It is because A antibodies reacts with its corresponding antigen, which is A, and B antibodies reacts with B antigens. The reaction between red cells and corresponding antibodies usually results in clumping or agglutinating of the red cells. [3]

To do blood type testing, in this experiment, we can use agglutination tests, which is a method to check for certain antigens or antibodies. [5] This method can show whether an individual has which blood type. Agglutination of red cells results from antibody cross-linkages established when different specific combining sites of one antibody react with antigen on two different red cells. [2] This means that if anti-A antibodies react with A antigens, anti-B antibodies react with B antigens, and anti-AB antibodies react with both A and B antigens, blood clot will be formed. If testing with blood type O, nothing will change because blood type O does not contain any antigen.

Therefore, the purpose of this experiment is to check how antigens and antibodies interact and to know the individual blood type and know the possibilities of the blood type of the baby from blood type of parents. It is important to do this experiment and know our blood type because if we know our blood type, we will know which blood types do not match with us. If they do not match, they can cause us to death. Since the agglutinated red cells can block blood vessels and inhibit the circulation of the blood to various parts of the body. [4] Also, the agglutinated blood cells crack and its contents leak out in the body, which when hemoglobin gets outside the red blood cells, if becomes toxic, leading to death.

control and anti-B antibodies. ● ● Discussion:

 

From the results, when the

blood mixed with anti-A antibodies and anti- AB antibodies, blood agglutination was formed, meaning that in the blood there was A antigen which belongs to blood type A. We could say that this blood was blood type A because although it reacted with anti-AB antibodies, it did not show any reaction in anti-B antibodies, which always reacts with B antigen. And if it were blood type B, the blood would not be agglutinated when mixing with anti-A antibodies. Thus, in the blood, there was only A antigen that could identify it was a blood type A. Also, it could not be blood type O because there would be no changes in all circles—no blood coagulation—if it were blood type O. In addition, there had to be blood coagulation in two circles, A and AB, if the blood was A blood type since in the anti-AB antibodies, anti-A antibodies were also present, so it formed an interaction which was blood agglutination. From knowing this, it would be dangerous if blood

type A were injected to a person with blood type B or if injected blood type A or B to a person with blood type O. ●

The baby will have 100% blood type O, meaning that Kat has blood type O.

Conclusion:

 

In this experiment, we did blood type testing with considering how the blood

would change when it was mixed with each antibodies: anti-A, anti-B, anti-AB. And we indicated from the changing what blood type it was. For the changing, it happened because of antibody cross-linkages established when one antibody reacts with antigen on two different red cells. Antibodies binded with its corresponding antigens to destroy them as when B-type blood is injected into the one with blood type of A. The anti-B antibodies present in blood type A will interact with antigen B from blood type B, forming blood clot. That blood clot can bring an individual to death because when the substances get out from the cracking of agglutinated red blood cells, they turn toxic. Hence, it is very necessary to know our blood type and which blood

type can match with ours. A person with blood type AB can accept all blood types. A person with blood type A can receive blood from. ●
