The amino acid differences among 12 β chains and 10 α chains of carnivore hemoglobins are given. These hemoglobins conform to the substitution rate found for hemoglobins in general. A table compares the differences among known α-chain sequences when deduced from tryptic peptide compositions and when taken from actual sequences. Among the carnivore hemoglobins studies, tryptic peptide compositions are about 14 % low in giving the number of sequence differences.
