Authors: Hüseyin ARIKAN, Mehmet K. ATATÜR, Ahmet MERMER

Abstract: In this study, blood-serum proteins of 22 adult (11 MM , 11 VV ) Chalcides ocellatus (ocelated skink) specimens collected from various localities in Southern Anatolia are investigated qualitatively and quantitatively by means of polyacrylamide disc electrophoresis and densitometry. The species' serum protein electropherograms and protein distribution patterns are established for the first time.

Keywords: Chalcides ocellatus, blood-serum proteins, electrophoresis, densitometry.
