Abstract: We present 11 dinucleotide micro satellite DNA loci isolated from the narrow-leaved cattail (Typha angustifolia) and describe conditions for their amplification. The PCR primers were tested on at least 20 individuals of Typha angustifolia and T. latifolia from two Ukrainian populations per species. The primers amplify loci with relatively high numbers of alleles (averaging 7.22 and 4.95 alleles per locus in T. angustifolia and T. latifolia, respectively); and polymorphic information content (averaging 0.61 and 0.46 in T. angustifolia and T. latifolia, respectively).

Keywords: dinucleotide repeats, microsatellite, PCR, primer, radiation, Typha angustifolia, Typha latifolia, Ukraine
