Polyclone structure of settlements of unisexual european crucian carp (Carassius gibelio (Bloch, 1782)) in northern ukraine: allozyme markers and chromosome numbers analysis

Mezherin S.V., Pukhtaevych P.P., Kokodiy S.V.


SUMMARY. The allozyme analysis of five polymorphic loci sets of gynogenetic prucian carps C. gibelio from Northern Ukraine allowed to identify, within this species, 29 genetic forms of clone and recombinant nature; which can be divided into two categories. The first one is represented by the clone biotype C. gibelio-1 with modal number of 156 chromosomes and a number of unique alleles, which differentiate it distinctly from zooids of C. auratus. The second category is represented by the group consisting of 28 biotypes, designated as C. gibelio-2 of clone and recombinant nature. This groups fishes have no allozymes, which distinguish them from C. auratus. Within this group the 158 and 160 modal chromosome groups were discovered; each one has special genotypic combination of gene locus Aat-1. Apparently the series of biotypes, which are differentiated by the modal chromosome number, appeared independently as a result of hybridization of different parental species couples way back in Eastern Asia. Whereas the appearance of recombinant individuals with unique combinations of genotypes by five protein loci and by chromosome number within the clone C. gibelio-2 is a secondary event and it is related to inheritance mechanism implementation, which combines cloning and mendelian inheritance. There are some reasons to consider that this mechanism is implemented by pseudogamous crossing of genetically close females of C. gibelio-2 with males of C. auratus, while during the crossing of C. gibelio-2 females with C. arassius males the cloning takes place.
