Microsatellite Markers for the June Sucker (Chasmistes liorus mictus), Utah Sucker (Catostomus ardens), and Five other Catostomid Fishes of Western North America
Molecular Ecology Notes
We developed and optimized five new microsatellite markers for the genetic management of the endangered June sucker. We report the cross-amplification of these markers, and seven microsatellites previously developed for Klamath Basin suckers, in seven catostomid species of western North America. No linkage disequilibrium was detected between pairs of loci. Since most of these loci exhibited conserved priming sites, they may be useful for landscape-scale studies of speciation and patterns of gene flow among multiple sucker lineages.
