Which is the most common blood group?

The Stanford School of Medicine Blood Center ranks blood types in the United States from rarest to most common as follows:
  • AB-negative (.6 percent)
  • B-negative (1.5 percent)
  • AB-positive (3.4 percent)
  • A-negative (6.3 percent)
  • O-negative (6.6 percent)
  • B-positive (8.5 percent)
  • A-positive (35.7 percent)

In this way, which blood group is called Bombay blood group?

It is also called the HH group. The peculiarity is that they do not express the H antigen. As a result they cannot form A antigens or B antigens on their red blood cells. Thus they can donate blood to anybody with ABO grouping but can receive blood only from Bombay blood group people.

Which blood group has the most H antigen?

If a person has blood group O, the H antigen remains unmodified. Therefore, the H antigen is present in the highest amounts in blood type O and in the least amounts in blood type AB. Two regions of the genome encode two enzymes with very similar substrate specificities—the H locus (FUT1) and the Se locus (FUT2).

Which is the rarest blood group in the world?

What is the Rarest Blood Type? According to the American Red Cross the rarest is AB(-), present in 1% of the Caucasians, in African Americans it is even rarer. B(-) and O(-) are also very rare, each accounting for less than 5% of the world's population.
