Discrimination of Sturgeon and Related Species by PCR-RFLP Using the Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer System
9 Jun 2014
Species determination of sturgeon is an important issue to enforce regulations, monitor fraud in caviar shipments and assign import fees. A quick, robust and easy to use protocol to identify the species based on a well accepted PCR-RFLP method was tested with samples of sturgeon and other species. The improved method allows analysis from sample to result in one working day and yields good discrimination results.
