Isolation and characterization of microsatellite loci in Babylonia areolata and cross-species amplification in Babylonia formosae habei
- 海洋环境－已发表论文 
Nine novel microsatellite primer pairs were presented for Babylonia areolata, representing the first microsatellite markers available for this genus. Levels of polymorphism were variable with 2 to 11 alleles per locus and expected heterozygosities ranging from 0.073 to 0.907 in 27 individuals of the population from which the loci were isolated. We found significant heterozygote deficit at one locus that might be attributable to null alleles. We were successful at cross-amplifying six loci in the congeneric B. formosae habei. These markers are therefore potentially useful for conservation studies, population structure assessment, ecological analyses and linkage map construction.
