Functional microsatellite and possible selective sweep in natural populations of the black-chinned tilapia Sarotherodon melanotheron (Teleostei, Cichlidae).


The Prolactin I (PrlI) gene is a key locus involved in fish osmotic regulation. Two microsatellites, PrlI GT and PrlI AC, are present in the promoter region of this gene in tilapias. One of these microsatellite is associated to PrlI gene expression and growth rate. Aquaria reared individuals homozygous for long microsatellite alleles at the PrlI AC locus… (More)
