Increasing evidence suggests that the insulin-like andro­genic gland hormone (IAG) gene plays an important role in male sexual differentiation, metabolism, and growth in crustaceans. In the present study, we isolated the full-length genome sequence of IAG by genome walking based on the cDNA sequence in Macrobrachium nipponense. Four novel single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) were studied, in­cluding 509G>T, 529G>T, 590A>T in intron 1, and 2226A>G in intron 2.
