Haemoglobin components were analysed for nine species of New Zealand triplefins and their isoelectric points (pI) ranged from 5.1 to 7.0. The number of well-expressed isohaemoglobins was larger in shallow-water and tidal pool species, ranging from four in Grahamina signata to eight in Grahamina capito, and were relatively cathodal. Two strongly anodal isohaemoglobins were expressed in the mid-depth species Ruanoho decemdigitatus and Ruanoho whero, and one in the deeper water species Karalepis… CONTINUE READING
