To examine these polymorphic microsatellite markers developed in S.pharaonis for utility with other species, cross-amplification of these microsatellite loci was tested on three other species (S .lycidas, S.
Microsatellite loci generally show considerable evolutionary conservation, suggesting that primers developed for any one species may often be useful across a wide range of taxa.
High molecular weight glutenin subunits (HMW-GS) variation: In 84 accessions, 15 x-type and 9 y-type subunits were studied at the three Glu-A1, Glu-B1 and Glu-D1 loci. Glu-A1 had shown 3 x-type and Glu-B1 had given 6 x-type and 5 y-type subunits while Glu-D1 had 6 x-type and 4 y-type subunits (Table 1).
In addition, two tetranucleotide microsatellites loci DYS385 and 389II appeared to consist of higher average mutation rates among all 17 Y-STRs analyzed compared to all other trinucleotide and dinucleotide microsatellite loci [9].
Not only are these loci applicable to future research on the Missouri River, but they may also be used for research conducted elsewhere.
It might be possible to use only 2 or 3 loci that are highly polymorphic and easier to sequence in C.
