Abstract
The distribution of hemoglobin types was investigated in 296 blood samples of health sheep, included adult and young animal, breeder in Bahia State. In this study were included sheep of the Brazilian Native breed (BNB) as Santa Inês (SI), Morada Nova (MN), Rabo Largo (RL) and crossbred of Suffolk x Dorper and BNB x Dorper. Blood samples were collected by venipuncture of the jugular in tubes containing E.D.T.A. and the hemoglobin typing was performed by starch gel electrophoresis using Tris-EDTA-Borate (pH 9,5) as buffer solution. Two migrations bands associated to allele HbA and HbB were found, corresponding to the three genotypes: Hb-AA, Hb-AB and Hb-BB and the...
