T or T 3 Electric charge: This disorder was later characterized as a distinct entity and named Frank-ter Haar syndrome
Anti-N is sometimes seen in dialysis patients due to cross-reactions with the residual formaldehyde from sterilizing the equipment. This is usually irrelevant for transfusion since this variant of the antibody does not react at body temperature.
Anti-S and anti-s can cause hemolytic transfusion reactions and hemolytic disease of the newborn. The U antigen is a high incidence antigen, occurring in more than The U was originally short for "Universal", though this is not the case. U negative RBCs can be found in people of African descent. This mutation in red cell surface structure also makes the RBCs S- and s-. Anti-U has been associated with both hemolytic transfusion reactions and hemolytic disease of the newborn.
The other 41 identified antigens in the MNS group are low incidence, such as He 0. Antigens of the MNS system are located on one of two glycoproteins: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

The vector on the left represents a generic neutrino state expressed in the flavor basis, and on the right is the PMNS matrix multiplied by a vector representing the same neutrino state in the mass basis.
Due to the difficulties of detecting neutrinos , it is much more difficult to determine the individual coefficients than in the equivalent matrix for the quarks the CKM matrix. As noted above, PMNS matrix is unitary.
In the simplest case, the Standard Model posits three generations of neutrinos with Dirac mass that oscillate between three neutrino mass eigenvalues, an assumption that is made when best fit values for its parameters are calculated. The PMNS matrix is not necessarily unitary, and additional parameters are necessary to describe all possible neutrino mixing parameters in other models of neutrino oscillation and mass generation, such as the see-saw model, and in general, in the case of neutrinos that have Majorana mass rather than Dirac mass.
There are also additional mass parameters and mixing angles in a simple extension of the PMNS matrix in which there are more than three flavors of neutrinos, regardless of the character of neutrino mass. As of July , scientists studying neutrino oscillation are actively considering fits of the experimental neutrino oscillation data to an extended PMNS matrix with a fourth, light "sterile" neutrino and four mass eigenvalues, although the current experimental data tends to disfavor that possibility.
In general, there are nine degrees of freedom in any unitary three by three matrix. However, in the case of the PMNS matrix five of those real parameters can be absorbed as phases of the lepton fields and thus the PMNS matrix can be fully described by four free parameters. An infinite number of possible parameterizations exist; one other common example being the Wolfenstein parameterization. The mixing angles have been measured by a variety of experiments see neutrino mixing for a description.
