As the blood group AB is known to be a universal recipient,can an AB-positive individual receive blood from any of the Rh-negative bloodgroups(E.g A-,B-,O- and AB-)

@fayorks,
ABs are only able to donate to other AB people.

@Butrflynet,
Thanks for the links. From what I have read,I have gotten to understand that when an individual's blood is Rh+,both Rh+ and Rh- can be given without it changing anything. Does that now mean only AB+ blood group is a universal recipient and AB- is not??(as AB- blood's contact with Rh+ blood may cause Type-2 hypersensitivity)
