Microsatellite markers isolated from the Mexican banded spring snail Mexipyrgus churinceanus.

Abstract

The first twelve novel unlinked polymorphic microsatellite DNA loci were isolated from the Mexican banded spring snail (Mexipyrgus churinceanus). Genetic variability of each locus was assessed using 25 individuals from a single population from Cuatro CiƩnegas, Mexico. Mean observed heterozygosity varied from 0.14 to 0.92. The relatively high levels of detected polymorphism indicate that these markers will be useful for future population genetic studies of this Cuatro CiƩnegas endemic species.
