Epitope information of EP0021

Epitope IDEP0021
Epitope nameTn Antigen
Structure
SequenceGalNAc(a1-)Ser/Thr
Aliases
HistoryMreau et al. found a T-like antigen expressed on the patient's red blood cells and named "Tn" (for T nouvell). Tn syndrome is characterized by panagglutinability,hemolytic anemia,leukopenia and thrombopenia due to expression of Tn antigen on blood cells and production of anti Tn antibody in the same individual.
