Variation of haemoglobin in Otolithus ruber (Cuv. Val.)

N.B. Bhosle


Haemoglobin phenotypes of rosy jewfish, Otolithus ruber were studied by cellulose accetate electrophoresis. Haemoglobin have been named Hb-A, Hb-B, Hb-C and Hb-D according to their increasing mobility. In general most of the samples gave three bands, however variations in number and size of the band, and colour intensity, were observed. In the light of these results on haemoglobin phenotypes, the intraspecific variations in the species have been discussed.
