In Response To: Type "AO"--A w/recessive O gene (Edna O+/on ER4YT 4 life)
There really isn't any type AO, other than perhaps in those individuals who are secretors of A and O parents. These individuals (technically "AH", as the O antigen is actually the H (fucose) antigen) secrete about 1/4 of their blood type antigens as the H form, and thus may be sensitive to H-reactive lectins, at least in their salivary and body fluids.
Control over digestive secretions (acid, pepsin etc.) at least to the degree that it is linked to ABO genetics is Mendellian ('on-off').
However, as I've said A2 and non-secretor status play some role in protein metabolism and carbohydrate sensitivity.
This is extensively handled in LR.
