A person’s blood type is determined by different antigens that are able to attach to red blood cells (also other cells) in your body. The converse of these are antibodies, which are an immune response designed to attack invading pathogens. If you have type A blood, you will produce antibodies for B antigens, type B blood produces A antibodies, AB blood produces neither, and O produces both.

This is important because if you ever need a blood transfusion, you need blood that is compatible with the antibodies your body produces.
