Inherited haemoglobin ionographic properties in cotton rats



Inherited haemoglobin ionographic properties in cotton rats



Nature 189: 585-586



Three types of haemoglobin were distinguished in cotton rats (Sigmodon hispidus) taken from wild populations in North Carolina. Observations on wild rats as well as the results of test matings indicate that haemoglobin types A and B represent the homozygotes and type C the heterozygote of at least 2 contrasting genes. The fact that a 1: 1 mixture of haemoglobin from types A and B rats is almost indistinguishable from the haemoglobin of type C suggests that the A and B genes act co-dominantly.
