Structure and Function of Baboon Hemoglobins
This chapter details some preliminary findings concerning the structural and functional properties of hemoglobin from the olive baboon, Papio cynocephalus (= anubis). Although the amino acid sequence characterizations are not com-plete, nevertheless they do locate many of the presumed interchanges and even at this stage may possibly contribute to our understanding of human and primate hemoglobins.
