Isolation and characterization of eight microsatellite loci in Leporinus macrocephalus (Characiformes : Anostomidae) and cross-species amplification
(Blackwell Publishing, 2007-01-01)
Leporinus macrocephalus is a species endemic to the Paraguay River basin and an important fishery resource, as well as a valuable species in aquaculture programs. A total of eight polymorphic microsatellite loci were ...
Assessment of genetic structure in Mexican charolais herds using microsatellite markers
(Electronic Journal of Biotechnology, 2007-10-15)
Cattle-Derived Microsatellite Markers to Study the Water Buffalo Genome
(Int Buffalo Information Ctr, 2013-01-01)
Microsatellites are well-known DNA markers used in a variety of studies such as genome mapping, genetic diversity analysis, genetic conservation and phylogenetic studies. Although microsatellites are important markers, ...
A review of microsatellite markers and their application on genetic diversity studies in parrots
The ability of a population to adapt to a changing environment depends on its genetic variation. Thus, the study of genetic diversity within and among species or populations is especially important on conservation biology ...
Transferability of microsatellite loci from exotic Cervidae to Brazilian brocket deer (Mazama spp, Mammalia: Cervidae)
Transferability of microsatellite loci between closely related species has been reported in several species. This helps reduce costs involved with the development of primers for newly investigated species. Fifteen ...
Development and characterization of microsatellite loci in Phractocephalus hemioliopterus (Siluriformes: Pimelodidae) and their cross-species amplification in six related species
The catfish Phractocephalus hemioliopterus is native to the Amazon and Araguaia-Tocantins basins and one of the most exuberant catfishes. This specie is important, but overfishing, environmental changes, and water pollution ...
Twelve polymorphic microsatellite loci developed and optimized from the Leptodactylus chaquensis
We isolated and characterized twelve polymorphic microsatellite loci for Leptodactylus chaquensis. Levels of polymorphism of the microsatellite loci measured in twenty individuals showed two to 7 alleles per locus with ...
Microsatellite in Aeschynomene falcata (Leguminosae): diversity, cross-amplification, and chromosome localization
Aeschynomene falcata is an important forage species; however, because of low seed production, it is underutilized as forage species. Aeschynomene is a polyphyletic genus with a challenging taxonomic position. Two subgenera ...
Screening of genomic libraries
Microsatellites, or simple sequence repeats (SSRs), have proven to be an important molecular marker in plant genetics and breeding research. The main strategies to obtain these markers can be through genomic DNA and from ...
