Isolation and characterization of microsatellite markers in Japanese pear (Pyrus pyrifolia Nakai)
Fourteen microsatellite markers were developed from an enriched genomic library of Japanese pear (Pyrus pyrifolia) by selective hybridization. They were characterized using 17 Japanese pear cultivars. The expected heterozygosity and observed heterozygosity ranged from 0.21 to 0.74 and from 0 to 0.88, respectively. Two to 11 alleles were detected per locus, with IPPN09 and IPPN15 judged to amplify multiple loci. IPPN17 was the most informative locus with the lowest probability of identity (0.19). These primers exhibited a high cross-species transferability between species and genera.
