The swimming crab, Portunus trituberculatus, is an important marine animal and is widely cultured in China. In the present study, suppression subtractive hybridization was applied to identify the differentially expressed genes in the ovaries of mature and immature P. trituberculatus. One hundred and seventy six expressed sequence tag (ESTs) were identified, of which 100 were down-regulated, and 76 up-regulated. BLAST analysis identified 51 unigenes, of which 27 were down-regulated, and 24 up-regulated.
