,(al How similar are the amino acid sequences of humanand gorilla hemoglobin?-(b) How similar are human and horse hemoglobin?(c) How similar are gorilla and horse hemoglobin?6. Of the different types of amino acids found in hemoglobin,(a) how many are present in the same exact number in humans and gorillas?(bl in humans and horses?(c) in gorillas and horses?7. On the basis of your answer to question 6,(a) how similar are the chemical makeups of human and gorilla hemoglobin?8. Which two animals seem to have more similar hemoglobin?9. The sequence of amino acids corresponds to the sequence of base molecules in DNA. AIe the basesequences of DNA most similar in human and gorilla, gorilla and horse, or human and horse?10. In numbers,explainhowthebase sequences(genesI for hemoglobinformationon .)lumanchromosomes differ from those in gorillas; (How many bases are different?)11. What genetic mechanismmay have been responsible for this base sequence change?12. Give reasons for supponingor rejecting the following statement.Upon examination,segments ofhuman and gorilla DNA responsible for inheritance of hemoglobin should appear almost chemicallyalike.13. Give reasons for supponingor rejecting the following statement.Evolutionary relationshipsarestronger between living organisms which have close biochemical (proteinl similarities than betweenliving organisms which do not have close biochemicalsimilarities.
