Complete amino acid sequence of gamma chain of fetal hemoglobin of Japanese macaque (Macaca fuscata).


The complete amino acid sequence of the gamma chain of Japanese macaque (Macaca fuscata) was deduced from sequence analysis of its tryptic peptides and a few other peptides. Three amino acid residues are substituted compared to the human gamma chain, 77His (human) to 77Asn (Japanese macaque), 104Lys to 104Arg and 135Thr to 135 Ala. The primary structure of the gamma chain of Japanese macaque is the same as that of rhesus macaque (Macaca mulatta) (2) and yellow baboon (Papio cynocephalus) (3). Difference in the structure of the gamma chain among primate species is smaller than that of beta chain.
