Campostoma anomalum, Rhinichthys cataractae and their F1 hybrids were examined electrophoretically for 44 enzymatic loci, general muscle, and serum proteins. Of the 44 loci scored, acid phosphatase (ACP-B), alkaline phosphatase (AKP-A), esterase (EST-B), α-glycerophosphate dehydrogenase (GPD-A), malate dehydrogenase (MDH-A) and phosphoglucomutase (PGM-A) showed hybrid inheritance patterns. Serum proteins also demonstrated additive inheritance patterns, comprising 15 serum proteins in the parents and 18 in the F1 hybrid. Banding patterns for all mixtures of parental species were identical to those observed in the hybrid.
