By using real-time PCR, we compared gene expression of erythropoietin (Epo), a key regulator of circulating erythrocytes, and hypoxia-inducible factor 1 α (HIF-1 α), Epo expression inducer, in the kidneys of Spalax and white rats.

The blind subterranean mole rat of the Spalax ehrenbergi superspecies is a wild mammal that spends its entire life solely in sealed underground burrows ().The four Israeli allospecies, distinguished by different numbers of chromosomes and adapted to four different climatic regimes, were intensively studied inter‐ and multidisciplinarily as an evolutionary model for adaptation and speciation ().

Blind subterranean mole rats retain a degenerated, subcutaneous, visually blind but functionally circadian eye involved in photoperiodic perception.

Both genes are relatively conserved, although characterized by a significant number of amino acid. Blind subterranean mole rats superspecies, Spalax ehrenbergi, live in sealed underground burrows under extreme hypoxic/hypercapnic conditions (Nevo, ; Nevo et.
