This allowed us to assume that the specimens of the two subspecies collected at a single locality in the Indian Ocean Indonesia and the western North Pacific Philippines represented the genetic characteristics of each subspecies.
The subspecies-specific single substitution in A.
Results A single DNA nucleotide substitution in the mitochondrial DNA 16S rRNA gene was employed to identify the two subspecies where Anguilla bicolor bicolor and Anguilla bicolor pacifica possessed adenine and guanine, respectively. J Appl Ichthyol 2013, 29: 271—273.Next
A small portion of tissue was boiled in 50 μL of 50 mM sodium hydroxide at 95°C for 20 min, neutralized with 5 μL of 1 M Tris—HCl, pH 8, and then the supernatant was used for the allelic discrimination.
Accession numbers of sequences for each species are as follows: A. On the other hand, A. Freshwater Fishes of Australia.Next
The DNA nucleotide substitutions in A.
Fish fauna of the Fitzroy River in the Kimberley region of Western Australia — including the Bunuba, Gooniyandi, Ngarinyin, Nyikina and Walmajarii Aboriginal names. In PCR-based identification methods, the DNA nucleotide substitutions in a single species intra-species variation should be carefully taken into account, especially to distinguish genetically closed groups such as subspecies. Indonesian Shortfin Eel, Anguilla bicolor McClelland 1844 More Info Distribution Known from tropical waters of East and South Africa, across to the Western Indian Ocean; recorded in Australian waters from Crystal Creek, Warrender Hill to near the Fortesque River in the Kimberley region, Western Australia; also Christmas Island in the eastern Indian Ocean.
Evolution 1991, 45: 218—221.
The latest version of the IUCN Red List, however, evaluated the stock status of A. Remarks This species is known as Lanyi by the Bunuba language group in the Kimberley.Next
The Indonesian archipelago has been known to have the highest species richness of anguillid eels, and 7 Aoyama et al.
Scales tiny, elongate, embedded deeply in skin; lateral line straight, not associated with scales. Mar Biotechnol 2004, 6: 566—574.
Conclusions The method developed in this study is useful to accurately identify the two subspecies of A.
Metabolism No information on metabolism is available. Present and past genetic connectivity of the Indo-Pacific tropical eel Anguilla bicolor. Dots indicate the same nucleotide with those of A..Next
Following spawning, the small pelagic eggs float toward the surface where they hatch into leptocephalus larvae.
