Biochemical Variation and Genetic Heterogeneity in South Carolina Deer Populations


Protein variation in 218 white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) from the Savannah River Plant in South Carolina was examined by starch gel electrophoresis. Polymorphism occurred for 7 of 21 structural loci coding for 20 protein systems and for a gene duplication of alpha-chain hemoglobin. Segregating alleles were detected for esterase, transferrin… (More)
