Development of microsatellite loci in the European Dipper, Cinclus cinclus


Bucher, T B; Wandeler, P; Hegelbach, J; Keller, L F (2009). Development of microsatellite loci in the European Dipper, Cinclus cinclus. Conservation Genetics Resources, 1(1):309-312.

Abstract

Eighteen polymorphic microsatellite DNA loci were isolated in the Central European subspecies of the European Dipper (Cinclus cinclus aquaticus). The loci were tested for polymorphism using a test panel of 24 breeding birds. Numbers of alleles ranged from 2 to 21 per locus and expected heterozygosities varied between 0.47 and 0.83. Two loci (Cici10 and Cici12) proved to be Z-linked. Some pairs of loci exhibited significant linkage disequilibrium but not the two loci that are located on the Z-chromosome. This pattern suggests that demographic effects rather than physical linkage are likely responsible for the observed levels of linkage disequilibrium. These loci will be useful for applied conservation projects and for investigations of the dispersal and mating patterns of European and other dippers.
