Abstract

A set of new microsatellite loci were isolated from Chinese mitten crab and characterized in two Chinese mitten crab populations. The number of the alleles ranged from 3 to 8 and observed and expected heterozygosity varied from 0.0870 to 0.9565 and 0.3092 to 0.8367 in each population, respectively. Loci HLJEsin1, HLJEsin4, HLJEsin30 in CLN population and HLJEsin6 in CJS population presented significant deviation from Hardy–Weinberg equilibrium (PHWE < 0.001). These markers will be useful for population studies.
