  1. secretor

    A secretor is an individual whose bodily fluids (such as blood, saliva, semen, sweat) contain antigens related to their blood type. The ability to secrete these antigens into body fluids is determined by a single gene (known as the secretor gene), and people who have this trait are known as secretors while those who do not possess this trait are known as non-secretors. The status as a secretor or non-secretor can have implications on a person's susceptibility to certain diseases or conditions.
