    >How do the genes for blood type affect cell division?

    Mainly by influencing how well the genetic carrier survives. Blood type is now being seen as one of the factors for disease resistance. Of course, the *mix* of blood types comes about because there is a disadvantage to having the same blood type as everyone else in the population. The same is true for the histocompatibility genes. Look up ESS in Dawkins or other places.
