Abstract
Fourteen highly polymorphic microsatellite markers were developed and characterized for
the sharp-ribbed salamander, Pleurodeles waltl. Isolating microsatellites with more than 12
single repeat type units was only successful for a tetranucleotide repeat (ATAG). Compared
to microsatellite libraries constructed simultaneously for two anuran amphibian species, a
greater number of primer pairs designed for P. waltl had to be discarded, due to consistent
amplification problems. Low amplification success rate for P. waltl may be due to its larger
genome size. Consequently, to avoid nonspecific binding and to increase amplification
