It should be bear in mind that allozymes are relatively conserved molecular markers, thus, it cannot be discarded the possibility that they were unable to detect population divergence which is due to more recent and intermittent physical boundaries such as upwelling.
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.
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.paniculata.
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. Okazaki (1982b), in a study evaluating allozyme variation in Asian and North American populations, concluded that there were 11 geographically based regional groups of populations across the Pacific Rim.
Although the validity of allozymes for phylogenetic inferences is questionable since the historical and genealogical relationship between the different alleles remains unknown (Lowe et al.
Diagnostic allozymes have been found for specific identification of nearly all the mosquitoes investigated for this purpose, but there is apparently no way of predicting which enzyme systems are most likely to be involved in interspecific divergences.
