Isolation and characterization of polymorphic microsatellites for the natural populations of barker frog Physalaemus cuvieri

Ten polymorphic microsatellite loci were isolated for Physalaemus cuvieri from a GA—CA enriched library. In 160 P. cuvieri individuals, the number of alleles per locus ranged to 2–9 and the expected heterozygosity ranged from 0.30 to 0.85. The primers were successfully cross-amplified in the congeneric species P. albonotatus, P. ephippifer and Physalaemus… (More)
