Both hemoglobin type and red cell serotype seem to be autonomously controlled by the genotype of the nucleated cell from which the erythrocyte is derived. Thus, genetic differences in hemoglobin can be used as markers for bone marrow transplantation in irradiated mice. Hemoglobin typing may be particularly useful where the H-2 markers cannot be used.
