Quick Reference

A blood group determined by a red cell antigen specified by the Lu gene on human chromosome 19. Autosomal linkage in humans was first demonstrated between Lu and Le. The eponym Lutheran arose from a misinterpretation of the name of the patient (Luteran) who provided the antigen. See blood group, Lewis blood group.
