Serum transferrins of Japanese macaques: Comparison with other species of monkeys
- 24 Downloads
Sera from seven species of monkeys and apes were electrophoresed in starch gels for examining their serum transferrin variations. A single transferrin component was observed in 130 individuals ofMacaca fuscata, while other three macaque species showed multiple components of transferrin. The transferrin ofMacaca fuscata was electrophoretically identical to one of the transferrin components of other macaque species.
