Specificity H-2.7 is expressed predominantly on erythrocytes and controlled by a gene that maps within the H-2 gene complex at a locus, designated as H-2G, which apparently lies between regions S and D. Three phenotypes have been observed with respect to this antigen: a) positive by direct test and absorption (haplotypes H-2f, H-2j, H-2p, H-2s); b) positive only by absorption (H-2k); and c) negative (H-2b, H-2d, H-2q). New crossover positions have been established for several H-2 recombinants based on classifications for the H-2G locus.
