Additional comments

This allele is the by far most frequent DEL allele in China. Initially, its structure was misinterpreted as RHD(del Ex9). The correct structure was first identified during a screen for D negatives in South-Western Germany that was initially deposited as patent application (May 2000, open accessible since May 2001) and published by Wagner et al. in BMC Genet 2001. Independently, a partial sequence of the allele was described in an abstract in the June 2001 issue of Transfusion Clinique Biologique by Singleton et al..To emphasize the structural basis of the (unchanged) protein, a novelty at the time, this allele was originally called RHD(K409K). Later the term RHD(1227G>A), based on the nucleotide structure, became more widely used..
