Polymorphic microsatellite DNA markers for the Amazonian catfish Pseudoplatystoma punctifer (Siluriformes: Pimelodidae)


The large catfish Pseudoplatystoma punctifer has a high commercial value in the Amazon. Fifteen polymorphic microsatellite loci were isolated and characterized in 36–39 individuals of this species sampled at the Purus river (Amazon Basin). The number of alleles per locus ranged from 2 to 18 (average 7.4), the observed heterozygosity (HO) from 0.025 to 0.972… (More)
