Hemoglobins of Chironomus tentans and C. pallidivittatus: Biochemical and Cytological Studies

  • Herbert Tichy
Conference paper


Hemoglobin, the respiratory protein of the vertebrates, occurs among the insects only in the larvae of the Chironomides, the non-biting midges. In contrast to the hemoglobin of vertebrates, Chironomus hemoglobin is dissolved in the body fluid of the larvae. The concentration varies from 1 to 5 % depending on the larval stage.
