The primary structure of a mouse-eared bat (Myotis velifer, Chiroptera) hemoglobin

, : The primary structure of a mouse-eared bat (Myotis velifer, Chiroptera) hemoglobin. Biological Chemistry Hoppe-Seyler 367(12): 1243-1249

The hemoglobin of the Mouse-Eared Bat Myotis velifer consists of one component. We present the primary structures of the alpha- and beta-globin chains which have been separated by chromatography on carboxymethyl-cellulose CM-52. The sequences have been determined by Edman-degradation with the film technic or the gas phase method, using the native chains and the tryptic peptides, as well as the C-terminal prolyl-peptides obtained by acid hydrolysis of the Asp-Pro-bonds. Compared to the corresponding human chains we found only 13 substitutions in the alpha-chains, but 27 in the beta-chains. The amino-acid residues substituted in the alpha-chains are not involved in any contacts, whereas in the beta-chains, one exchange involves a heme contact, three alpha 1/beta 1- and one alpha 1/beta 2-contacts, the latter [beta 43(CD2)-Glu----Thr] brings for the first time threonine in this position of the beta-chains. Comparison with the Egyptian Fruit Bat (Rousettus aegyptiacus) shows 12 and 25 substitutions in the alpha- and beta-chains, respectively, suggesting a large phylogenetic distance between Micro- and Megachiroptera. We consider this primary structure as a contribution towards solving the problem of the origin of bats and their relation to primates.
