Abstract: In this study, the distribution of microsatellite sequences in the whole genome of giant panda well as polar bear were analyzed and compared. A total of 855 018 and 936 238 perfect microsatellite sequences with 1~6 bp nucleotide motifs were identified from giant panda and polar bear, respectively. The total length of microsatellites was 14 919 240 bp (0.65% of the genome size) in giant panda, and 18 434 348 bp (0.79% of the genome size) in polar bear. The abundance of microsatellites was 405.6 no./Mbp in polar bear , and 371.81 no./Mbp in giant panda. Among of which, mononucleotide repeats (accounting for 48.56 %) was the most abundant, followed by the dinucleotide, tetranucleotide, trinucleotide, pentanucleotide and hexanucleotide repeats. A, AC, AG, AAAT, AAAG, AT and C were the most abundant repeat units shared by the two genomes. This study can provide a basis for developing and screening a large number of high-quality microsatellite markers for bear family.
