Iguana iguana;Iguana delicatissima
A (GA)n and (GT)n microsatellite-enriched library was constructed and 25 nuclear simple sequence repeat (SSR) loci were characterized in the Lesser Antillean Iguana (Iguana delicatissima). All SSR loci were found to be polymorphic after screening for diversity in different cultivars, and a cross-taxa amplification tests showed the potential transferability of most SSR markers in Iguana iguana. First to be published for I. delicatissima, this new SSR resource will be a powerful tool for intra-specific genetic studies and for investigation of hybridization events with Iguana iguana.
