Blood of the adult Tree Sparrow (Passer montanus) contains two hemoglobin components, Hb A (ca. 85%), Hb D (ca. 15%). They differ in their alpha-chains (alpha A, alpha D), the beta-chains are identical. The complete primary structures of alpha A-, alpha D- and beta-chains are presented. Comparison with the Greylag Goose (Anser anser) hemoglobin (Hb A) showed that the alpha A-chains differ by 22 amino-acid exchanges, the beta-chains by 16. Comparison with the minor component of the Pheasant… CONTINUE READING
