Expert Answer:

 There are 4 blood groups in humans – A, B, AB and O.

The blood group antigens are controlled by an autosomal gene designated I (isohaemaglutinin) which has 3 alleles IA, IB and IO. Allele IA is dominant over the allele IO and allele IB is dominant over IO .



Blood group                     Allele

A                               IAIA or IAIO      

B                               IBIB or IBIO

AB                             IAIB

O                              IOIO


In addition, the blood groups may be Rh +ve or Rh-ve, depending on the presence or absence of Rh factor in blood.
