Microsatellite markers for the ectomycorrhizal basidiomycete Lactarius mammosus

Hoegberg, N.; Guidot, A.; Jonsson, M.; Dahlberg, A.


We report the characterization of polymorphic microsatellite markers in the ectomycorrhizal fungus Lactarius mammosus Fr. Two enrichment protocols were used to isolate microsatellite loci and polymorphism was explored within 31 sporocarps originating from a forest site in northern Sweden. We found nine variable microsatellite loci with the number of alleles per locus varying between 2 and 5, and expected heterozygosities ranging from 0 to 0.84. These loci are available for the analysis of genetic structure and gene flow in L. mammosus populations.
