Single-nucleotide polymorphism in populations of sockeye salmon Oncorhynchus nerka from Kamchatka Peninsula

Single-nucleotide polymorphism in populations of sockeye salmon Oncorhynchus nerka from Kamchatka... The genetic variability of 45 single-nucleotide polymorphism loci was examined in the four largest wild populations of sockeye salmon Oncorhynchus nerka from drainages of the Asian coast of the Pacific Ocean (Eastern and Western Kamchatka).

Abstract

The genetic variability of 45 single-nucleotide polymorphism loci was examined in the four largest wild populations of sockeye salmon Oncorhynchus nerka from drainages of the Asian coast of the Pacific Ocean (Eastern and Western Kamchatka). It was demonstrated that sockeye salmon from the Palana River were considerably different from all other populations examined. The most probable explanation of the observed differences is the suggestion on possible demographic events in the history of this population associated with the decrease in its effective number. To study the origin, colonization patterns, and evolution of Asian sockeye salmon, as well as to resolve some of the applied tasks, like population assignment and genetic identification, a differential approach to SNP-marker selection was suggested. Adaptively important loci that evolve under the pressure of balancing (stabilizing) selection were identified, owing to this fact the number of loci that provide the baseline classification error rates in the population assignment tests was reduced to 30. It was demonstrated that SNPs located in the MHC2 and GPH genes were affected by diversifying selection. Procedures for selecting single-nucleotide polymorphisms for phylogenetic studies of Asian sockeye salmon were suggested. Using principal-component analysis, 17 loci that adequately reproduce genetic differentiation within and among the regions of the origin of Kamchatka sockeye salmon were selected.
