Anti-Mta, which recognizes an antigen in the MNS blood group system, was detected during prenatal testing of a para 6, gravida 1 woman with no history of transfusions. Her husband was apparently Mt(a–). Anti-Mta was first reported in 1962 as a naturally occurring antibody directed against a new antigen in the MNS system. The last report in the literature of detection of anti-Mta was in 1972.
