Analysis of genetic variation in green chromide [ Etroplus suratensis (Bloch)] (Pisces: Cichlidae) using microsatellites and mitochondrial DNA

  author={M Dhanya Alex and Appukuttannair Biju Kumar and U. Suresh Kumar and Sanil George},
The cichlid fish, Green Chromide [Etroplus suratensis (Bloch)] is an economically valuable food fish and a preferred candidate for brackishwater aquaculture in India. Genetic variation of E. suratensis collected from 11 different geographic locations of Kerala state, India was investigated using microsatellite and mitochondrial DNA markers [cytochrome c oxidase 1 (CO1) and 16S rDNA genes]. Seventeen primers published for two cichlid species were tested to amplify homologous microsatellite loci… Expand

Novel Polymorphic Microsatellite Markers in Scylla paramamosain and Cross-Species Amplification in Related Crab Species
12 novel polymorphic microsatellite markers isolated in S. paramamosain are reported using PCR-based isolation of micros Satellite arrays (PIMA) and cross-species amplification of these markers was evaluated in three closely related crab species S. tranquebarica, S. olivacea, and S. serrata. Expand
Geographical structuring of Indian pearl spot, Etroplus suratensis (Bloch, 1790) based on partial segment of the CO1 gene
suratensis, locally known as "pearl-spot", is economically important in fisheries and aquaculture industries in South India. DNA sequencing, based on a partial segment of the Cytochrome oxidase cExpand
Genetic diversity and historical demography of Chinese shrimp Feneropenaeus chinensis in Yellow Sea and Bohai Sea based on mitochondrial DNA analysis
Results indicated that F. chinensis in the Yellow Sea and Bohai Sea might have undergone a genetic bottleneck or founder event during the late Pleistocene globle glacial period. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA Diversity of Tor tambroides Valenciennes (Cyprinidae) from Five Natural Populations in Malaysia
The phylogenetic analysis using Neighbor-joining (NJ) and maximum-parsimony (MP) methods supported the monophyletic status between T. tambroides and T. douronensis, thus suggesting their status as different species. Expand
Isolation and characterization of microsatellite markers in the African catfish Clarias gariepinus (Burchell, 1822)
Specific microsatellite primers for Clarias gariepinus are developed in order to perform paternity tests and to characterize wild and domesticated populations and their potential use in other catfish is reported. Expand
Genetic characterization of two mahseer species (Tor douronensis and Tor tambroides) using microsatellite markers from other cyprinids
Overall, the identified microsatellite loci should be useful in analysing T. douronensis and T. tambroides natural populations. Expand
Low diversity and high levels of population genetic structuring in introduced eastern mosquitofish (Gambusia holbrooki) in the greater Melbourne area, Australia
Evaluated genetic variation, colonisation and movement patterns of introduced G. holbrooki in the greater Melbourne area helped delineate boundaries for local management strategies and suggested all populations were founded by individuals from a common source. Expand
Genetic and morphological variation in a common European cyprinid, Leuciscus cephalus within and across Central European drainages
The phylogeographic structure of Leuciscus cephalus in north-eastern Bavaria showed low congruence with Cottus gobio populations sampled in the same area. Expand

The hypothesis of relationships for Cichlidae based on nucleotide characters from 16S alone, arguably the most comprehensive and broadly sampled data set across all major geographic assemblages to date, is congruent with prevailing hypotheses regarding the sequence of Gondwanan fragmentation and a vicariance scenario to explain the current distribution of cichlid fishes.
