Respiration at High Altitudes, Phosphate-Protein-Interaction: Sequence of the Hemoglobins of the Hamster (Mesocricetus aureatus) and the Camel (Camelus ferus, Camelidae)., Höhenatmung, Phosphat-Protein-Wechselwirkung: Die Sequenz der Hämoglobine des Goldhamsters (Mesocricetus aureatus) und des zweihöckerigen Kamels (Trampeltier, Camelus ferus, Camelidae).

The sequence of the main component of the hemoglobin of the hamster and that of
the camel (Camelus ferus) is given. The sequence is obtained automatically by the sequenator using
the quadrol and the propyne programme. The sequence of the α-and β-chains of the hamster is compared
with the human hemoglobin; the sequence of the hemoglobin of the camel (Camelus ferus,
Cameiidae), in comparison to the llama, there are to be found in the α-chains five amino acid exchanges,
in the β-chains are two exchanges - in β2 and β76 - only. The sequence β2 in camel - the P2-glycerate contact - is histidine: This sequence sustains the interpretation of the high altitude respiration
of the llama as mutation β2His to Asn. The amino acid sequence of the hemoglobin of Camelus
ferus and Camelus dromedarius is identical.
