Thirteen (GT)n and four (CT)n microsatellite loci (n = 10 or more and n = 20 or more, respectively) have been isolated from a partial genomic library of brown trout and sequenced. On average, a (GT)n repeat sequence occurs approximately every 23 kb and a (CT)n repeat sequence every 76 kb in brown trout genome. Primers for DNA amplifications using the(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)
Variation in the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) of rDNA was examined throughout the range of the brown trout (Salmo trutta) to analyze the usefulness of this molecular marker for phylogeographic analysis. The results were compared with those previously obtained with mtDNA, a region exhaustively analyzed along the brown trout distribution. ITS2 was(More)
Understanding how microsatellites are distributed in eukaryotic genomes is important to clarify the differential abundance of these repeats under an evolutionary scenario. We have concatenated data from 3165 DNA sequences of 326 Bivalvia species to search for taxonomic patterns of microsatellite distribution in genomic regions of markedly different(More)
The development of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) parr was monitored during the first year in a fresh-water hatchery environment to test whether multilocus heterozygosity (computed for six allozyme loci: s AAT-4*, IDDH-1*, IDDH-2*, IDPH-3*, s MDH-3,4* andm MEP-2*) is associated with growth (body mass, fork length) and maturity status (mature male parr). The(More)
The turbot is a flatfish species of great relevance to marine aquaculture in Europe. Only a limited number of microsatellites have been isolated to date in this species. To increase the number of potentially useful mapping markers, we screened simple sequence repeat (SSR)--enriched genomic libraries obtained from several di-, tri-, and tetranucleotide(More)
A juxtaposed microsatellite system (JMS) is composed of two microsatellite repeat arrays separated by a sequence of less than 200 bp and more than 20 bp. This paper presents the first empirical evaluation of JMSs for the study of genetic admixture induced by man, with brown trout (Salmo trutta) as model organism. Two distinct admixture situations were(More)
Limpets (Patella spp.) are suitable organisms to investigate the effects of climate change in marine systems. They are widespread over NE Atlantic intertidal rocky shores and have been extensively studied in terms of population dynamics and ecology. Within genus Patella, microsatellites have only been developed for Patella caerulea and cross-species tests(More)
