2. Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) and direct sequencing of mtDNA from the ND5/6 gene region in Persian strugeon Acipenser persicus from the southern Caspian Sea



A partial sequence of the mtDNA ND5 gene region was used for population study in Persian sturgeon (west and east areas of southern Caspian Sea). The result showed that although this approach was informative for phylogenetic study in sturgeon, it was less informative for population study in Persian sturgeon.
