Abstract

We isolated and characterized eight polymorphic microsatellite DNA markers from the Korean field mouse, Apodemus peninsulae. The primers developed in this study yielded an average polymorphic information content of 0.78 (range 0.44-0.90), with an average of 10.9 alleles per locus (range 5-16). Observed and expected heterozygosities ranged from 0.46 to 1.00 and from 0.49 to 0.93, respectively. These polymorphic loci may provide useful tools for understanding the species' genetic structure and ecology.
