Human blood is made of the same basic elements. It is a classification based on the presence or absence of inherited antigenic substances on the surface of red blood cells. What makes the four types of blood groups different from each other is their antigens which are proteins and sugars that our bodies use to identify the blood cells as belonging to our own system.
