Starch gel electrophoretic patterns of hemoglobins from fetal mice of seven inbred strains (two with single, five with diffuse adult hemoglobins), were compared with each other and with electrophoretic patterns of hemoglobins from adults of the same strains. The blood from 15-day-old fetuses of all strains contained four electrophoretically separable heme components. However, there seems to be a difference between strains with single and diffuse adult hemoglobin in the time of emergence of a clear adult pattern.
