Groundnut SSR Markers


  • Koilkonda et. al. 2012 reported large-scale development of EST-SSR markers in groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.). In total 3,187 markers were generated from the 10,102 potential non-redundant EST sequences. A total of 1,571 EST-SSR markers showing clear polymorphisms were reported.
  • With an objective of identification of highly informative set of SSR markers Pandey et. al. 2012 screened 4,485 markers using a set of 20 parental genotypes of 15 mapping populations and provided a total of 946 highly informative SSR markers in cultivated groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L.).
  • Zhao et. al. 2012 compiled 1,343 polymorphic SSR markers as detecting polymorphism (14.5%) within a total of 9,274 markers.
  • Wei et. al 2011 downloaded 92,403 EST sequences of groundnut (Arachis) from NCBI database and analyzed to identify the SSR markers. In total 2,594 SSRs distributed in 2,267 non-redundant EST sequences could be detected.
  • Nagy et. al 2010 screened 2,847 SSR markers were screened for linkage to Rma-247, a dominant root-knot nematode resistance gene introduced into tetraploid peanut Table.
  • Gautami et. al 2009 isolated 29 SSRs from a SSR-enriched library was from the groundnut genotype ICGV 86031.
  • Guo et. al.2009 developed 290 new EST-based SSR markers and examined for amplification and polymorphism in cultivated peanut and wild species Table.
  • Liang et. al 2009 investigated 24,238 ESTs for the identification and development of SSR markers. In total, 881 SSRs were identified from 780 SSR-containing unique ESTsTable.
  • Proite et. al. 2007 identified 206 microsatellites from the ESTs produced from four cDNA libraries of RNAs extracted from leaves and roots of A. stenosperma.
  • Luo et. al 2005 characterized 44 EST derived SSR markers using ESTs developed from two cDNA libraries from leaves of peanut line C34-24 (resistant to leaf spots and Tomato spotted wilt virus) (536 unique ESTs) and immature pods of peanut line A13 (769 unique ESTs) (tolerant to drought stress and preharvest aflatoxin contamination).
  • Moretzsohn et. al 2005 developed 271 new SSR markers from SSR-enriched genomic libraries, expressed sequence tags (ESTs), and by "data-mining" sequences available in GenBank Table.
  • Ferguson ME et. al 2004 SSRs identified with a probe of two 27,648-clone genomic libraries: one constructed using PstI and the other using Sau3AI/BamHI Table.
  • Hopkins et. al 1999 developed 6 SSR markers, five from the library screening procedure and one additional marker obtained from a search of publicly available DNA sequences.
  • A large set of SSRs (30,196) can be found at PeanutDB an integrated bioinformatics web portal for Arachis hypogaea transcriptomics. Download.
