Glycophorins A, B and C are sialoglycoproteins present on the human erythrocyte membrane, which possess the antigenic determinants for the MN, Ss, and Gerbic blood groups, respectively. Glycophorins singlepass transmembrane with their amino-terminal end to the extracellular surface of the human erythrocyte. Glycophorin A + B antibody identifies N-terminal, homologous portion of glycophorins A (GPA) and B (GPB), (strongly to GPA, and weakly to GPB). This antibody is helpful in eythroid cell development study, since HIR2 antigen is expressed on the surface of late erythroblasts, early erythroblasts, erythroblasts, mature erythrocytes and the cell of erythroid cell lines K562 and HEL, but not on all other cell (mature erythrocytes are characteristically CD235a positive and CD45 and CD71 negative).
