Abstract

Intraspecific and interspecific nucleotide sequence variations of the mtDNA control region (D-loop) were studied with mtDNAs isolated from tissue specimens of more than 1400 sturgeons of nine species: Russian sturgeon Acipenser gueldenstaedtii, Persian sturgeon A. persicus, Siberian sturgeon A. baerii, Amur sturgeon A. schrenkii, Fringebarbel sturgeon A. nudiventris, sterlet A. ruthenus, stellate sturgeon A. stellatus, beluga Huso huso, and kaluga H. dauricus. The results were used to analyze the interspecific variation of the mtDNA control region in the given set of species and to develop a test system of ten species-specific primers, which allowed species identification from noninvasive tissue samples, spawn, and food products of eight species. The system proved suitable for multiplex PCR. A method was developed for the first time to reliably differentiate the A. baerii mitotype and the baerii-like mitotype of A. gueldenstaedtii. It was found that, although genetically separate, A. gueldenstaedtii and A. persicus are relatively young species and have common mitochondrial haplotypes, precluding their identification via mtDNA analysis alone. To develop a system for species identification of A. gueldenstaedtii and A. persicus, it is necessary to study the polymorphism of nuclear markers.
