The complete amino-acid sequences of the hemoglobins from the adult Sumatran tiger (Panthera tigris sumatrae) have been determined on automatic liquid- and gas-phase sequenators. The globin chains were isolated by reverse phase HPLC on a column of Nucleosil-C4. N-Acetylserine was detected by FAB-mass spectroscopy as N-terminal aminoacid residue of the beta I chain. Comparing the sequences of the globin chains of the tiger with that of human Hb-A, 23 substitutions were recognized in the alpha, 29 in beta I and 28 in the beta II chain.
