Abstract.

 

Blood glucose, haemoglobin, red cell count, haematocrit and total plasma protein1 of the lizard Uromastix microlepis were determined. The mean values are: 124 mg/100 ml, 5.8 g/100 ml, 0.680 million/mm3, and 24.6% and 5.5 g% respectively. The electrophoretic behaviour of serum proteins, plasma proteins and haemoglobin is found to be generally similar within the two representatives of family Agamidae, Agama persica and Uromastizx microlepis, found in Kuwait. The general electrophoretic pattern of serum and plasma proteins consists of five fractions. The first four fractions or globulins are generally lower in concentration, and somewhat less distinctly separated from each other, than the fifth fraction which is the albumin. The electrophoretic patterns of serum and plasma of Uromastix look similar to each other. The protein patterns of Uromastix show little variation from those of Agama, both in the concentration of the reactions and in the proportion of albumin to globulin. This can be correlated with the phylogenetic relationships of the two genera, as judged by morphological characteristics. No fibrinogen is detected in the plasma pattern of either lizard. Haemoglobin of Uromastix moves as a homogeneous single-component fraction. with a relatively higher anodic mobility than in Agama.
