We report a novel RHCE*02 allele in a Swedish blood donor that is characterized by the change c.460A>G (Arg154Gly). The blood donor's red blood cells showed variable reactivity with different monoclonal anti-C and anti-e and antigen strength was markedly weakened. We believe that these changes represent both a quantitative and qualitative alteration of the antigens encoded by this allele.
