We have developed microsatellite DNA markers for Mesopodopsis orientalis (Tattersall 1908), a widely distributed mysid crustacean in shallow waters of the coastal and estuarine systems across India to Indonesia and the Philippines. A total of 18 novel polymorphic microsatellite markers were identified in 32 individuals from a sandy beach at Teluk Kumbar in(More)
In Japan, domestic freshwater fish are accidentally introduced into non-native freshwater habitats by human activity, such as the planting of fish. Introduction of the domestic alien fish may have a detrimental effect on native fish inhabitants. However, investigations on the distribution and establishment of such domestic alien fish in non-native river(More)
Rhinogobius sp. YB (Gobiidae) distributed in the Ryukyu Archipelago is a fluvial species of gobies. We present 34 novel microsatellite loci that were tested on 32 individuals from the Okierabu-jima Island in Kagoshima Prefecture. Seventeen loci were polymorphic, while the remaining 17 were monomorphic. The number of alleles per the polymorphic loci ranged(More)
Twenty-four microsatellite loci were isolated and characterized from the genome of Rasbora borapetensis. Flanking polymerase chain reaction primers were designed and used to amplify these loci in 32 individuals. All loci were polymorphic with allele numbers ranging from 2 to 27, observed heterozygosity from 0.031 to 1.000 and expected heterozygosity from(More)
We developed and characterized a total of 19 novel polymorphic microsatellite loci from the genome of Clupeichthys aesarnensis. Flanking PCR primers were developed and used to show that all loci were polymorphic with the number of observed alleles per locus in 30 individuals ranging from two to 15. The observed heterozygosity ranged from 0.033 to 0.933,(More)
Agricultural canals with deep concrete walls are commonly installed in paddy field areas following land consolidation projects in Japan. Such canals create a critical migration barrier for frogs, as escape is not possible after falling in. Hence, countermeasures that allow migrating frogs to cross agricultural canals, such as lid structures to prevent frogs(More)
Twenty-nine microsatellite loci were isolated and characterized from the genome of Esomus metallicus. Flanking polymerase chain reaction primers were designed and used to amplify these loci in 32 individuals. All loci were polymorphic; with allele numbers ranged from 2 to 27, observed heterozygosity from 0.031 to 0.969 and expected heterozygosity from 0.031(More)
We isolated and characterized a total of 40 polymorphic microsatellite loci from the genome of Parambassis siamensis. Flanking Polymerase Chain Reaction primers were developed and used to show that all loci were polymorphic with the number of observed alleles per locus in 32 individuals ranging from 2 to 29. The observed heterozygosity ranged from 0.063 to(More)
Thirty-two polymorphic microsatellite loci were indentified and characterized from the mysid Crustacea Mesopodopsis tenuipes Hanamura et al., 2008. The number of observed alleles per locus in 32 individuals collected from its type locality in Malaysia ranged from 2 to 22. The observed heterozygosity ranged from 0.031 to 0.906, while the expected(More)
Twenty-three polymorphic microsatellite markers for Sympetrum frequens were developed and characterized. The number of distinct alleles per locus in 32 individuals ranged from 2 to 23. The observed heterozygosity ranged from 0.031 to 0.938, while the expected heterozygosity varied from 0.031 to 0.922. No loci deviated significantly from Hardy–Weinberg(More)
