Thermal acclimation in goldfish does not appear to involve synthesis of new globin chains. Rearrangement of subunits creates new iso-Hb components (Houston, 1980). In trout, no effect of thermal acclimation on the oxygen-binding properties of the hemolysates from warm- and coldacclimated species could be established, although changes were observed 20 FRANK B. JENSEN ET AL. , 1980). X. ADAPTATION OF HEMOGLOBIN FUNCTION The intrinsic (genetically coded) functional properties of hemoglobins determined by globin structure (amino acid sequence) result in species differences that may reflect adaptations to particular environments or metabolic requirements.
