Homework Help: Biology

Posted by Jessie on Friday, December 14, 2012 at 7:32pm.

A person with AB blood type is transfused with type O blood. What happens and why?
----
The textbook says there will be no immune reaction.

I understand that the transfused type O red blood cells have no antigens and the recipient type AB plasma has no antibodies.

However, won't the transfused type O plasma have AB antibodies that will react with the AB antigens present on recipient type AB red blood cells?
