Thus, in this study we aimed to estimate the genetic variability of Hemiodus orthonops using the allozymes electrophoresis technique and compare it to other species from Parana River basin, which was also studied with allozymes electrophoretic technique.
Evidence of a biogeographic break between population of a high dispersal starfish: congruent regions within Indo-west Pacific defined by colormorphs, mtDNA, and allozymes data.
Moreover, the amount of migration detected is probably the main cause of the low genetic differentiation found for allozymes here, but other evolutionary forces, such as genetic drift and mutation rates, for example, must be in action to generate and maintain the differentiation detected for microsatellites.
The first one was carried out using 19 allozyme s loci in the northern Mexican populations, where a genetic diversity of zero was estimated (Soltis et al.
A total of six allozymes encoded 15 putative loci (AAT-1, AAT-2, AAT-3, ADH-1, ADH-2, PRX-1, PRX-2, EST-1, PGM-1, PGM-2, PGM-3, PGM-4, PGI-1, PGI-2, PGI-3) were consistently resolved in all population of T.
The development of species or strain-specific tests for fishes has lagged due to continued use of allozyme tests and microsatellites.
Surveys of genetically based population structure in chum salmon were initially conducted with allozymes.
Moreover, the selective neutrality of allozymes has often been questioned.
Few attempts have been made to explore specific biochemical characteristics of mosquitoes other than allozymes, and yet the available results are not discouraging.
