Abstract Four hemoglobin phenotypes have been detected among domestic goats by zonal electrophoresis. Breeding data indicate that two of these phenotypes represent animals homozygous at relevant structural loci and two represent heterozygotes. Electrophoresis of hemoglobin chains reveals both α- and β-chain variation. The phenotypes are interpreted in terms of genotypes which require a postulated duplication and subsequent divergence for the original α-chain structural locus (see Fig. 5).
