Abstract:We developed 467 microsatellite loci from a microsatellite-enriched database for red panda (Ailurus fulgens) using the Roche 454 Genome Sequencer Platform. From this database, we isolated and characterized 115 microsatellite loci and chose 25 to genotype in 42 red pandas, with repeat motifs like TAT, GATA, AAACA, AAAACA and so on. The number of observed alleles ranged from 3 to 10. Observed and expected heterozygosities ranged from 0.143 to 0.929 and from 0.136 to 0.869, respectively. The mean polymorphic information content was 0.128-0.843, and the loci were not deviated from expectation of the Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium. We recommend that these markers be used in the systematic control of genetic management for A. fulgens. These markers could also be used as powerful tools applying in the population genetic research of A. fulgens in the future.
