1. Hemoglobin (Hb) switching in the perinatal life of wild mouflon (Ovis musimon) was characterized by the replacement of Hb F by 60% levels of Hb C, and subsequently of Hb C by Hb B. 2. The recently discovered Hb M variant was not replaced by Hb C; thus, Hb BM heterozygote newborns synthesized 30% Hb C at the expense of Hb B. 3. Hybrid B mouflon x B sheep synthesized only 5% Hb C at birth but were able to produce 30% Hb C in adult life following induced anemia. 4. Adult BB and BM mouflons, after the same extent of induced anemia, synthesized HB C levels similar to those produced at birth. The results indicate a mouflon beta-globin gene cluster arrangement similar to those of sheep and goat, the beta-c gene having an intermediate expression. Results also suggest a selective disadvantage in hybrid animals.
