Variable Microsatellite Markers for Genotyping Tree Shrews, Tupaia, and their Potential Use in Genetic Studies of Fragmented Populations


We describe the sequences of six primer pairs for the PCR amplification of nuclear microsatellite markers in the tree shrews, Tupaia glis and T. belangeri. Multilocus genotyping based on non-destructive DNA sampling of live-trapped animals reveals high allelic variability (A) and heterozygosity (He) at these loci. Such characteristics make these genetic… (More)
