Development of EST-derived microsatellite markers in mungbean [Vigna radiata (L.) Wilczek] and their transferability to other Vigna species

Published on

Twenty microsatellite markers were developed from
mungbean [Vigna radiata (L.) Wilczek] EST sequences
available in public database. Out of these, ten
microsatellite markers (50%) were found to be polymorphic
when screened on 22 genotypes. The number of alleles
ranged from two to three with an average of 2.3 alleles
per locus. Polymorphic information content of the
microsatellite markers ranged from 0.09 to 0.59 with an
average of 0.31. When these microsatellite markers were
screened on eight other Vigna species, they showed high
transferability (90%) to other Vigna species. These ESTderived microsatellite markers may be useful for linkage
mapping, gene tagging and genetic diversity analysis in
mungbean and other related Vigna species.
