Abstract: In this study, skeletal muscle protein bands of the Bombina bombina specimens from five populations inhabiting in Turkish Thrace and Northwestern Anatolia were compared by SDS-PAGE (Sodium Dodecyl Sulphate-Poly Acrylamide Gel Electrophoresis). Totally 54 adult (26 females and 28 males) B. bombina specimens were used in SDS-PAGE characterization. B. b. bombina specimens in the Thrace group (Degirmenyeni, Buyukdoluk and Durusu populations) had 26 homologous protein bands whereas B. b. arifiyensis specimens in the Northwestern Anatolia group (Arifiye and Karasu) had 28 bands. It was shown that specimens of B. b. arifiyensis had two additional and unique bands. The results of the present study show that Thrace and Northwestern Anatolia specimens of the B. bombina populations in Turkey are different according to total number of skeletal muscle protein bands.
