2 The immune destruction of fetal red cells Despite a wealth of in vitro data, it is unclear which of the Fc␥ receptors are involved in the immune destruction of sensitized cells. 45 However, a role for Fc␥ receptor I in vivo seems unlikely because interactions between anti-D-sensitized red cells and this high affinity receptor are blocked by IgG concentrations several orders of magnitude lower than those found in plasma. Fc␥ receptor IIa has a very low affinity for IgG1 and IgG3 and seems unlikely to play a role in the destruction of red cells sensitized with these subclasses.
