1. Peptide fingerprints of tryptic digests of the globins of sea snake species of Hydrophis, Pelamis, Aipysurus, Laticauda and the terrestrial elapid Naja were compared. 2. Globin divergence, as estimated from peptide fingerprints, paralleled closely transferrin divergence, as measured immunologically. 3. Taxonomic affinities, suggested by the fingerprint data, are concordant with McDowell's taxonomic system for sea snakes with the following exceptions: (a) Laticauda shows a closer affinity to… CONTINUE READING
