Abstract

Ten polymorphic dinucleotide (CA/GT and GA/CT) microsatellite loci suitable for population genetic screening were characterized from enriched partial Ostrinia nubilalis genomic libraries. Sequence from 126 enriched small insert genomic library clones identified 25 CA/GT and 58 GA/CT loci that were unique. Perfect repeats tended to be short (n = 10–12). Ten microsatellites, PCR amplified from a Crawfordsville Iowa population showed a mean of 10 alleles per locus (range six to 20), and six of 10 loci showed heterozygote deficiency. Amplification of eight loci was observed in the sister species O. furnicalis.
