A total of thirty-six microsatellite loci were isolated and characterized in the endemic and endangered fish species rock carp (Procypris rabaudi) from China. Each locus was screened in a population of natural and artificial breeding individuals. The number of alleles observed per locus ranged from 2 to 13. The observed and expected heterozygosities ranged(More)
Percocypris pingi is an endemic subspecies of Percocypris mainly distributed in upper Yangtze river (Jinsha river) and its branch river. This species has been listed as a near threatened species in IUCN Red List. Twelve microsatellite markers were developed and the allele number of these polymorphic markers ranged from 2 to 5. Observed and expected(More)
In the present study, we developed 16 polymorphic microsatellite loci in Rhinogobio ventralis, an endemic cyprinid fish in the upper reaches of the Yangtze River. The polymorphism of each locus was assessed in 32 individuals collected from Jiangjin section of the Yangtze River. A total of 126 alleles were detected and the number of alleles per locus ranged(More)
72 microsatellite loci were isolated from a (GATA)8 enriched genomic library of Schizothorax wangchiachii (Fang), an endemic fish species in the upper reaches of the Yangtze River. A population of 32 wild captured individuals of this species was tested by these 72 primer pairs developed, 11 pairs of which exhibited polymorphic. The number of observed(More)
Twenty-eight microsatellite loci were isolated in Sinilabeo rendahli, an endemic cyprinid fish in China. In a test on a population of 48 individuals, 15 primer pairs exhibited polymorphism with 2–12 alleles per locus, while the rest 13 were monomorphic. Observed and expected heterozygosities ranged from 0.104 to 0.915 and 0.195 to 0.865, respectively. Four(More)
Seventeen polymorphic microsatellite loci were isolated from Rhinogobio cylindricus, an endemic Chinese cyprinid fish in the upper reaches of the Yangtze River, using the fast isolation by AFLP of sequences containing repeats (FISCO) protocol. The number of observed alleles per locus ranged from 2 to 9. Observed and expected heterozygosities ranged from(More)
