Abstract :

This study was carried out to determine genetic characteristic of the mammals by analyzing their electrophoretic pattern of hemoglobin and three dehydrogenases in the blood i.e. glucose 6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD), 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase (6-PGD), and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH). Twelve captive Sumatran elephants conserved in Besitang Subunit of Aceh’s ETC were used in the study. The results showed that all Sumatran elephants of Aceh examined have similar electrophoretic pattern of hemoglobin and dehydrogenase enzymes to that of human, but with different electrophoretic mobility and kinetics. Phenotypes of ehemoglobin A, ePGD A, eLDH 1 to eLDH 5 and eLDH X were found in all Sumatran elephants examined, whilst phenotypes of eG6PD B was only found in 10 out of 12 elephants examined.
