Amino-acid sequences of the two major components of adult hemoglobins from the stump-tail monkey, Macaca speciosa.


The adult Stump-Tail Monkey (Macaca speciosa) was found to have two major hemoglobin components (Hb 1 and Hb 2) which were separated by carboxymethyl cellulose column chromatography. The tryptic peptides of the alpha and beta chains from the two components were isolated and sequenced. The peptides were aligned based on the homology of their sequences with that of human adult hemoglobin. Only one amino-acid difference was found between the alpha chains from Hb 1 and Hb 2 at the 15th position from the N-terminus. On the other hand, the beta chains from the two hemoglobin components were considered to be identical.
