Eleven microsatellite markers were developed for Rhaphiodon vulpinus, a widely distributed fish in the Amazon region. Recently, the Amazon fishes are being threatened by the construction of several dams, therefore genetic investigations are essential to further evaluate the impact of these dams on native species. Two R. vulpinus populations were analyzed(More)
The cDNAs of the α-subunit of the pituitary gonadotrophic hormones (GTHα) of fish of the order Osteoglossiformes or the superorder Osteoglossomorpha have never been sequenced. For a better understanding the phylogenetic diversity and evolution of PGHα in fish and for future biotechnological synthesis of the gonadotrophic hormones (ag-FSH and ag-LH), of(More)
The common gonadotrophic hormone α-subunit (GTHα) has been previously isolated by our research group from A. gigas pituitaries; in the present work the cDNA sequences encoding FSHβ and LHβ subunits have also been isolated from the same species of fish. The FSH β-subunit consists of 126 amino acids with a putative 18 amino acid signal peptide and a 108 amino(More)
