One hemoglobin was found in the adult rhesus monkey (Macaca mulatta) by the technique of isoelectric focusing. In addition to the adult hemoglobin, one fetal hemoglobin was observed in neonates of the same species. The α and non α globins of rhesus monkey hemoglobins showed similar electrophoretic mobilities as those of human hemoglobin A by cellulose acetate membrane electrophoresis. It appeared that the rhesus monkey hemoglobin system is a good model system for the study of human hemoglobin development.
