Development of polymorphic microsatellite loci in the endangered tree species Dysoxylum malabaricum
2010 (English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
Dysoxylum malabaricum Bedd. (Meliaceae) is an economically important tree species occurring in the Western Ghats, a mega-diversity hotspot in southern India. In this paper, we report the development of fifteen microsatellite markers for D. malabaricum. The microsatellite primers development of fifteen microsatellite markers for D. malabaricum. The microsatellite primers screened had 2-9 alleles per locus and the observed and expected heterozygosity ranged from 0.07 to 1.00 and 0.07 to 0.9 respectively. Seven microsatellites cross amplified in the related species Dysoxylum binectariferum and showed good polymorphism. These are the first microsatellites described for D. malabaricum and they will be used to study population structure and genetic diversity.
