2 Blood Cell Antigens A, B, O blood type Rh factor Blood types are the result of the presence (or absence) of antigens (molecules) on the surface of the individual’s red blood cells. These fall into two groups:A, B, O blood typeRh factor
3 CodominanceThe gene for antigen A and the gene for antigen B are CODOMINANT.Both traits are expressed completely when the gene for A is inherited from one parent and the gene for B is inherited from the other parent.

6 Blood Type ProblemThree children recently born in a hospital were accidently mixed up. The blood types of the parents involved are given along with the blood types of the infants. Determine which baby belongs with which parents, and explain your reasoning for the decisions you made.Mother and Father_____ _____Babies_______Parents #1 Type A & Type B Child x Type AParents #2 Type O & Type AB Child y Type OParents #3 Type B & Type O Child z Type AB
