Abstract

The study was conducted to investigate the phenotypes of blood proteins, hemoglobin and albumin, of 104 German shepherds in Dag-gu, Yae-chum Kim-hae and Kwang-ju area by the starch gel electrophoresis. The results obtained were summarized as follows: 1. The hemoglobin phenotypes were observed three(HbBB, HbBb and Hbbb). Fast migrating bands were same and slow migrating bands were divided by heavy(HbBB), light(HbBb) and non-stained(Hbbb). The frequencies of appearance in HbBB, HbBb and Hbbb were 17.31%, 51.92% and 30.77%, respectively. 2. The hemoglobin phenotypes were controlled by two allelic genes, $Hb^b$ and $Hb^B$. The gene frequencies were calculated at 0.567 in $Hb^B$ and 0.433 in $Hb^A$. 3. The albumin phenotypes were observed three(AlbFF, AlbSS and and AlbFS), which were divided by fast migrating band(AlbFF), slow migrating band(AlbSS) and mixed migrating band(AlbFS). The frequencies of appearance in AlbFF, AlbFS and AlbSS were 5.77%, 28.85% and 65.38%, respectively. 4. The albumin phenotypes were controlled by two alleic genes, $Alb^F$ and $Alb^S$. The gene frequencies were calculated at 0.202 in $Alb^F$ and 0.798 in $Alb^S$.
