In a survey of variation in both electrophoretic charge and thermostability at 14 structural loci in 40 strains of Mus musculus, 27 electromorphs (polypeptides differing in electrophoretic charge) and 20 thermomorphs (polypeptides differing in thermostability) were found. Electrophoresis detected 11 new variants within thermomorphs, and the heat denaturation technique detected four new variants within electromorphs. From these data, and making the assumption that both techniques are independent… CONTINUE READING
