Several human salivary proteins are known to exhibit genetic polymorphism, but little information is sofar available in non-human primates as to such phenotypic variability. We tried to collect a considerable number of saliva samples from Japanese monkey(Macaca fuscata) and also other species of macaques to examine their salivary proteins.
