Peacock bass

Evidence for a natural hybrid of peacock bass (Cichlamonoculus vs Cichla temensis) based on esterase electrophoretic patterns

A. Saturnino Teixeira and de Oliveira, Sda Silva, Evidence for a natural hybrid of peacock bass (Cichlamonoculus vs Cichla temensis) based on esterase electrophoretic patterns, vol. 4, pp. 74-83, 2005.

Esterase (Est) and esterase-D (Est-D) electrophoretic patterns identified by starch gel electrophoresis of skeletal muscle protein extracts of 184 specimens of three species of peacock bass, locally known as tucunarés (Cichla monoculus, C. temensis and Cichla sp), plus four specimens of a supposed hybrid (C. monoculus vs C. temensis), collected from the Central Amazon, were examined to determine if they could aid in identifying a supposed hybrid between C. monoculus and C. temensis.
