Reactivity of high-incidence antigens after glycine-EDTA treatment of red blood cells (RBCs) to prepare artificial Ko RBCs was investigated. The treatment had little or no effect on Yta, JMH, Yka, Kna, and McCa. Hy antigen-positive-treated RBCs reacted less well with anti-Hy when compared to nontreated cells. Glycine-EDTA treatment to prepare Ko RBCs offers an advantage over AET treatment because it preserves some high-frequency antigens that AET treatment does not.
