GALLEGUILLOS, Ricardo; CANALES-AGUIRRE, Cristian B; FERRADA, Sandra e BARRERA, Andrea. SSRs in Octopus mimus: development and characterization of nine microsatellite loci. Rev. biol. mar. oceanogr. [online]. 2011, vol.46, n.3, pp.491-494. ISSN 0718-1957. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-19572011000300019.
Nine microsatellite loci were developed for Octopus mimus, a cephalopod of commercial importance for artisanal fishermen. Genetic variation at these loci was examined in samples from Clavelito, a Benthic Resources Management Area (AMERB, in Spanish). All nine loci were highly polymorphic, with the number of alleles per locus ranging from 4 to 28 and the expected heterozygosity ranging from 0.651 to 0.946. These markers will be useful to address issues of population genetics, ecology, conservation and fisheries management related to that species.
