    • Abstract


      The present paper reports the haemoglobin pattern by paper electrophoresis of seven rodent and one insectivore commensal species collected from Bombay-Pune region. Almost all the samples possess 1/1 type of haemoglobin which is slower in mobility than that of the normal human type. While the genusBandicota possesses polymorphic haemoglobin types, it is quite surprising thatSuncus murinus has the haemoglobin of anodic mobility as against itsSoricidae counterpart’s,Sorex’s, haemoglobin showing cathodic mobility.
