Abstract

1. 1. Hemoglobin (Hb) switching in the perinatal life of wild mouflon (Ovis musimon) was characterized by the replacement of Hb F by 60% levels of Hb C, and subsequently of Hb C by Hb B.
2. 2. The recently discovered Hb M variant was not replaced by Hb C; thus, Hb BM heterozygote newborns synthesized 30% Hb C at the expense of Hb B.
3. 3. Hybrid B mouflon × B sheep synthesized only 5% Hb C at birth but were able to produce 30% Hb C in adult life following induced anemia.
4. 4. Adult BB and BM mouflons, after the same extent of induced anemia, synthesized HB C levels similar to those produced at birth. The results indicate a mouflon β-globin gene cluster arrangement similar to those of sheep and goat, the βC gene having an intermediate expression. Results also suggest a selective disadvantage in hybrid animals.
