Abstract: In this study, globulin and albumin proteins of Apodemus mystacinus and Apodemus agrarius were examined using the SDS-PAGE (sodium dodecyl sulphate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis) technique. In A. mystacinus, there were 7-8 bands in the globulin region and 2-3 bands in the prealbumin zone. It was determined that there were variations in both the globulin region and prealbumin zone in populations of A. mystacinus. In specimens of A. agrarius, nine bands appeared in the globulin region, and two bands were observed in the prealbumin zone. These findings showed that A. mystacinus differs from A. agrarius in respect to electrophoretic aspects of albumin and globulin proteins.
Keywords: Apodemus mystacinus, Apodemus agrarius, albumin, globulin, SDS-PAGE.
