Serum proteins of the California ground squirrel (Spcrmophilus beecheyi) were analyzed by standard electrophoretic methods. Results were presented in terms of total protein, albumin and albumin-globulin (A/G) ratios. Boundaries between globulin fractions were too obscure to warrant analyses of these elements individually.Total protein means differed in squirrels live-trapped at two locations, and live-trapped squirrels had higher total protein levels than squirrels shot. The mean A/G ratios… Expand

TLDR
The use of the mean relative mobility of specific proteins was shown to be a valuable aid in distinguishing species in Nearctic squirrels. Expand
ALASKAN MOOSE BLOOD STUDIES WITH EMPHASIS ON
TLDR
Adult moose from 5 populations sampled during late winter were ranked based upon condition influenced blood values, and a ranking was provided based upon inclusion of a known highly productive population (Copper River Delta) and a poor producing population (MRC). Expand

TLDR
It is pointed out that electrophoretic patterns of serum are an index to the physiologic condition of the patient rather than an indication of a specific disease. Expand
Effects of Cuterebra angustifrons on plasma proteins of Peromyscus leucopus.
TLDR
Marked alterations of plasma protein distribution occurred in white-footed mice (Peromyscus leucopus) infested with botfly (Cuterebra angustifrons) larvae, indicating a significant reduction in the albumin-to-globulin ratio (A/G) for those animals infesting with larvae of a botfly, CuterebraAngustifron1 (Dunaway et al., 1964).

TLDR
The need for establishing physiologic values for a species was recognized and the many variables affecting these must be considered and the difficulty of separating some variables from the wild/captive classification was discussed. Expand

TLDR
Cases presented exemplify laboratory alterations associated with the disease affecting the system under review, and some cases can be used for self-evaluation. Expand
