Microsatellite markers for Amazon pellona Pellona castelnaeana (Clupeiformes: Pristigasteridae)

A. M. Ximenes, Hernández-Ruz, E. J., Machado, V. N., Rodrigues, L. R. R., Ritter, G. C. S., and Farias, I. P., Microsatellite markers for Amazon pellona Pellona castelnaeana (Clupeiformes: Pristigasteridae), vol. 14. pp. 5123-5126, 2015.

The Amazon pellona is one of the few species of Pristigasteridae with recognized commercial value in the Amazon. We isolated 24 and characterized 8 microsatellite loci for this species. The number of alleles ranges from 2-8 per locus. Observed heterozygosities ranged from 0.052-0.823, while expected heterozygosities from 0.052-0.836. These 8 microsatellites are potentially valuable tools for characterizing the levels and distribution of genetic diversity, population structure, and gene flow.
