The topmouth culter (Culter alburnus) is an economically important freshwater fish, which is widely distributed throughout large rivers, reservoirs, and lake areas of China. We report here the isolation and characterization of 32 new polymorphic microsatellite loci isolated from genomic DNA in this species enriched by (CA)12 and (GA)12 probes. The variability of these microsatellites was tested on 30 individuals cultured. The average allele number was 6.6 per locus, ranging from 3 to 12.

Fifteen new polymorphic microsatellite markers were developed for Culter alburnus. In 32 individuals representing a wild population of the Danjiangkou Reservoir, Hubei, China, the number of alleles at these loci varied between 2 and 10, with an average of 5.5. The average observed and expected heterozygosities were 0.664 and 0.681, respectively. The polymorphism information content of 11 loci was more than 0.5 whereas that of the other 4 loci was less than 0.5 but more than 0.25. In addition, the genomes of 30 C.
