Nuclear and mitochondrial DNA analyses reveal four genetically separated breeding units of the swordfish
Variants in the calmodulin gene intron 4 (CaM) and the mtDNA D-loop region (D-loop) detected by RFLP and nucleotide sequence analyses were used to investigate the global stock structure of theExpand

Phylogenetic relationships among Thunnus species inferred from rDNA ITS1 sequence
Intra and interspecific nucleotide sequence variation of rDNA first internal transcribed spacer (ITS1) was analysed using all eight species of the genus Thunnus plus two out-group species within theExpand

Nuclear and mitochondrial DNA markers indicate unidirectional gene flow of Indo-Pacific to Atlantic bigeye tuna (Thunnus obesus) populations, and their admixture off southern Africa
A sharp genetic break separates Atlantic from Indo-Pacific bigeye tuna (Thunnus obesus) populations, as the frequencies of two major mitochondrial (mt) DNA types (α and β) found in this species areExpand

Global population structure of albacore (Thunnus alalunga) inferred by RFLP analysis of the mitochondrial ATPase gene
The genetic population structure of the highly migratory albacore (Thunnus alalunga) was investigated using restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) analysis of the mitochondrial ATPase geneExpand

Investigation on Natural Diets of Larval Marine Animals Using Peptide Nucleic Acid-Directed Polymerase Chain Reaction Clamping
The stomach contents of the larvae of marine animals are usually very small in quantity and amorphous, especially in invertebrates, making morphological methods of identification very difficult.Expand

Boundary between the north and south Atlantic populations of the swordfish (Xiphias gladius) inferred by a single nucleotide polymorphism at calmodulin gene intron
Genetic differentiation of the Atlantic swordfish (Xiphias gladius) was investigated by a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) at the calmodulin gene (CAM) intron locus. Clearly distinct allele andExpand

POPULATION STRUCTURE OF FINLESS PORPOISES (NEOPHOCAENA PHOCAENOIDES) IN COASTAL WATERS OF JAPAN BASED ON MITOCHONDRIAL DNA SEQUENCES
Abstract To clarify population structure of finless porpoises (Neophocaena phocaenoides) in Japan, we examined mitochondrial DNA sequences of 174 animals. All individuals except for a female wereExpand
