Our daughter was home on spring break from college and I decided to have her tested for the Mg Antigen and secretor status.

Come to find out, she does have the rare Mg antigen, but she is MMg whereas I am NMg.  Would this mean my husband has to be MM?  Could he still be MN?

Also, she is a secretor (Lewis a-b+) while I am a non-secretor.  Does this mean that my husband has to be a secretor?  

I have yet to understand the heredity of blood types  -  sorry - didn't do very well in high school biology or chemistry either    One thing I do know is that we are a family of four happy O+.

homozygous of M
why not test your husband and eliminate your doubting?

I am homozygous of N

Wouldn't my daughter be a heterozygote rather than a homozygote?  She is M-Positive, Mg-Positive and N-Negative, since Mg is a an antigen in the MNS system?

Daughter is  heterozygous having alleles M and Mg

Since her Mg allele came from her mother, she got the M allele from father.

Father could be homozygous MM or heterozygous MN

Secretor is dominant.

You would be homozygous sese.

Daughter would be heterozygous Sese.

Father would be a secretor-could be homozygous SeSe or heterozygous Sese.

Here are diagrams of how it works for secretor parents:

C_sharp, how about the secretor status?  Does this mean my husband has to be a secretor since I am a non secretor?
