microsatellite, Paratherina, polymorphic, sailfin silversides, Telmatherina antoniae, Telmatherina, Telmatherinidae
Ten primer pairs were designed from two genomic libraries enriched for (GACA) 4 and (GACA) 7 in the sailfin silverside Telmatherina antoniae. Characterization with 57 T. antoniae individuals revealed between three and 30 alleles, with observed and expected heterozygosity values ranging from 0.47 to 0.98 and from 0.46 to 0.93, respectively. Eight of the 10 loci conformed to Hardy–Weinberg equilibrium, with no significant linkage detected between loci pairs. These microsatellite markers are intended for use in population genetic studies of T. antoniae and related fishes of the family Telmatherinidae.
