Abstract

We describe the first set of ten microsatellite markers isolated in Pipistrellus abramus. The number of alleles per locus ranged from 7 to 13. The observed and expected heterozygosities values ranged from 0.486 to 0.971 and from 0.752 to 0.876, respectively. Three loci revealed significant departure from Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium and no linkage disequilibrium was found between loci pairs. These informative microsatellite markers will be a powerful molecular tool for studying the population genetic structure of P. abramus, as well as other species of this genus.
