The Blood Group Antigen FactsBook
How do you keep track of basic information on the proteins you work with? Where do you find details of their physicochemical properties, amino acid sequences, gene organization? Are you tired of scanning review articles, primary papers and databases to locate that elusive fact? The Academic Press FactsBook series will satisfy scientists and clinical researchers suffering from information overload. Each volume provides a catalogue of the essential properties of families of molecules. Gene organization, amino acid sequences, physicochemical properties, and biological activity are presented using a common, easy-to-follow format. Taken together they compile everything you wanted to know about proteins but were too busy to look for.

This compact paperback has quickly become the most valued and useful resource in my blood banking and immunohematology library. I recommend that you acquire a copy at your first opportunity... it is highly readable...you will not be able to stop until you reach the last page. There is no better value in any bookstore. Don't delay in treating yourself, your colleagues, and students to this fact-filled adventure. --Gerald Sandler, MD in IMMUNOHEMATOLOGY ...the end result is a book that should jostle for space on the bookshelf of everyone with even a casual interest in red cells and blood group antigens... every aspect of the red-cell membrane is covered, and its publication is timely considering that the majority of the major blood group antigens have now been defined at the molecular level. --Transfusion Medicine The authors have packed an enormous amount of information into this book. It would be an important addition to, rather than a replacement for, other reference texts on the bookshelves of anyone who has a serious interest in Transfusion Science. --Geoff Poola in BBTS NEWSLETTER, NO 44 Once you start reading this unique compilation of facts and information about blood group antigens, you will not be able to stop until you reach the last page... Dr. Reid and Ms. Lomas-Francis have met the challenge and produced a masterwork... This compact paperback has quickly become the most valued and useful resource in my blood banking and immunohematology library... I recommend that you acquire a copy at your first opportunity... There is no better value in any bookstore. Don't delay in treating yourself, your colleagues, and students to this fact-filled adventure. --GERALD SANDLER, Professor of Medicine and Pathology, Director, Blood Bank, Georgetown University Medical Center, Washington, DC
