Phylogenetic relationships among Greek populations of the chub, Leuciscus cephalus, were investigated using 600 bp of the cytochrome b gene. The aim of this study was to test the assumption that the main difference in ichthyological composition between both sides of the Balkan Peninsula is directly linked to differences in the dispersion mechanisms used by(More)
This study examines the population genetic structure of the endangered bivalve Pinna nobilis (Mollusca: Bivalvia), based on novel mtDNA sequences (partial COI and 16S rDNA mtDNA genes). The analyzed nucleotide sequences of COI were 729 bp in size, coding for a 243 amino acid peptide, while the analyzed nucleotide sequences of 16S rDNA were 489 bp in size.(More)
The nuclear receptors are a large family of eukaryotic transcription factors that constitute major pharmacological targets. They exert their combinatorial control through homotypic heterodimerisation. Elucidation of this dimerisation network is vital in order to understand the complex dynamics and potential cross-talk involved. Phylogeny, protein-protein(More)
Much research at the national and international level has been devoted to the development of several genetic methods for use in the characterization of fish stocks. We have developed a database that collates data from population genetic studies of fish. This database is accessible to researchers and control authorities on the Internet and should serve as a(More)
A DNA methodology based on PCR and sequencing analysis of the mtDNA 16S rRNA gene was developed for the discrimination of picarel Spicara flexuosa and blotched picarel Spicara maena (Pisces: Centracanthidae). The molecular results indicated that there is a clear discrimination between the two species, as all the individuals of S. flexuosa revealed the same(More)
Wild common carp from two lakes and two rivers in Greece were genetically characterized with sequencing analysis of two mitochondrial DNA segments: cytochrome b (1119 bp) and D-loop (646 bp). A total of 9 variable singleton sites and 7 unique haplotypes were detected. A common haplotype was found in three out of the four populations examined, which seems to(More)
Sharpnose mullet, Liza saliens (Risso, 1810) is one of the valuable species in Caspian shoreline and it was first introduced to Caspian Sea from Black Sea between 1930 and 1934. In the present study, we used six microsatellite markers to obtain genetic information for L. saliens from four localities of southern Caspian Sea and for one native population from(More)
