In this paper we present the analysis of nucleolar organizer regions (NORs) in five species of the order Pleuronectiformes (Scophthalmus maximus, Scophthalmus rhombus, Platichthys flesus, Solea solea and Solea lascaris), a group of fish poorly studied cytogenetically. In spite of the small chromosome sizes, which characterize the karyotypes of this group,(More)
A consensus microsatellite-based linkage map of the turbot (Scophthalmus maximus) was constructed from two unrelated families. The mapping panel was derived from a gynogenetic family of 96 haploid embryos and a biparental diploid family of 85 full-sib progeny with known linkage phase. A total of 242 microsatellites were mapped in 26 linkage groups, six(More)
A genetic analysis of freshwater pearl mussel Margaritifera margaritifera populations from NW Spain, a peripheral area of its European distribution, was carried out using microsatellite markers. These populations were formerly reported as genetically differentiated on the basis of growth and longevity studies. Ten loci previously characterized in(More)
The genetic variation of brown trout from Duero, one of the main Atlantic Iberian river basins, was assessed at 34 enzymatic loci in 62 native populations. A strong intrabasin differentiation was detected (G(ST) = 0.46; range D: 0-0.066), mainly attributable to the existence of two divergent groups of populations within Duero: southern and northern groups.(More)
A population analysis of an unusual NOR-site polymorphism previously detected in brown trout (Salmo trutta L.) from North-western Spain was carried out in 225 individuals from 20 native populations from this area. The analysis performed has permitted us to reveal: (i) the ubiquity of this phenomenon in most river basins from NW Spain, 13 extra-NORs not(More)
We have analyzed by Ag- and CMA3-staining, and rDNA fluorescent in situ hybridization an unusual NOR site polymorphism in a population of Salmo trutta from Mino basin (Northwestern Spain). A multichromosomal Ag-NOR distribution largely different from standard individuals both in the number and position of Ag-NORs, as well as in the pattern of activity, was(More)
The ability of three different bacterial species supported on granular activated carbon (GAC) to remove hexavalent chromium from low concentration liquid solutions was investigated, in batch and column studies. The microorganisms tested were Cr(VI) reducing types: Streptococcus equisimilis (CECT 926), Bacillus coagulans (CECT 12) and Escherichia coli (CECT(More)
An analysis of Robertsonian polymorphism and variation in the number of active NORs has been carried out in several populations of brown trout (Salmo trutta) from Northwestern Spain. The karyotype of this species appears to be soundly established, and essentially no variation has been found in chromosome number. Interindividual and interpopulation variation(More)
A quantitative analysis combined with Ag staining was carried out to study the size variation of the main nucleolar organizer region (NOR) bearing chromosome pair 11 of Salmo trutta. A standardized NOR size measurement was developed by comparing the length of the short arm (NOR-bearing region) to the total chromosome length. Statistical procedures support(More)
Previous studies using mitochondrial markers and microsatellites revealed a new highly differentiated Atlantic lineage of brown trout in the Iberian Peninsula mainly confined to the Upper Duero Basin. Data suggest that Duero lineage (DU) hybridizes with previously described Atlantic (AT) lineages in that basin. However, nuclear and cytogenetic data suggest(More)
