Isolation of twelve microsatellite markers in the pullet carpet shell Venerupis pullastra (Bivalvia: Veneridae)


In this paper we report 12 polymorphic microsatellite loci isolated for the pullet carpet shell Venerupis pullastra, a commercial important clam in Europe. All loci were tested on a minimum of 45 individuals from O Barqueiro (NW Spain). The number of alleles ranged from three to 28. Observed and expected heterozygosity ranged from 0.074 to 0.727 and from 0… (More)
