DNA sequence data was collected for the C and D introns in the duplicate growth hormone loci (GH1 and GH2) from Brachmystax lenok, two subspecies of Hucho hucho, Hucho (Parahucho) perryi, Salmo salar, Salmo trutta, Acantholingua ohridana (Salmothymus), six species of Salvelinus, eight species of Oncorhynchus including O. masou, and three outgroups including Thymallus thymallus, Coregonus artedi, and Coregonus clupeaformis. Phylogenetic analyses were performed using maximum parsimony and maximum… CONTINUE READING
