Genetic variation in different varieties of Siamese fighting fish using isoelectric focusing of sarcoplasmic proteins

Sarcoplasmic proteins of four colour varieties of Siamese fighting fish, Betta splendens Regan, were analysed by isoelectric focusing (IEF). Genetic polymorphisms were detected in six loci having isoelectric points: 4.92-5.00 (Sp-1), 5.33-5.48 (Sp-2), 5.90 (Sp-3), 6.31-6.35 (Sp-4), 6.58-6.70 (Sp-5) and 6.90 (Sp-6). For the Sp-1, Sp-2, Sp-4 and Sp-5 loci… CONTINUE READING
