Hemoglobin of 30 Macaca mulatta monkeys and of 15 Macaca irus monkeys consisted of one electrophoretic component similar to human hemoglobin A. Twenty-one M. irus monkeys had two types of hemoglobin. In 20 animals the hemoglobin resembled human hemoglobin AJ, and in one animal it resembled human hemoglobin AI.
