The Blood Group Antigen Gene Mutation Database

  The Blood Group Antigen Gene Mutation Database (BGMUT) documents variations in genes that encode antigens for human blood groups.  It also provides information on the blood group systems, the genes that encode them, the serological phenotypes, etc.  Blood group systems for which genes or genetic variations have yet to be identified are also documented.  For some systems, partial information on non-human orthologous genes is also made available.

To cite this database, please use Patnaik SK, Helmberg W, Blumenfeld OO. BGMUT Database of Allelic Variants of Genes Encoding Human Blood Group Antigens. Transfus Med Hemother. 2014 Oct;41(5):346-51. (PubMed 25538536).

The database was created in 1999 by , PhD, Department of Biochemistry, Albert Einstein College of Medicine (AECOM), New York, NY, and Santosh K. Patnaik, MD, PhD, Department of Thoracic Surgery, Roswell Park Cancer Institute, Buffalo NY. In 2006, this website moved from AECOM to the NCBI to become part of dbRBC where it has been under the direction and additional curatorship of Wolfgang Helmberg, MD, Department of Serology and Transfusion Medicine, Medical University of Graz, Austria. As of 2014 Dr. Patnaik has assumed the tasks of Dr. Blumenfeld who gave up her duties as co-curator.
