Ploidy Determination of Parthenogenetic Artemia by Flow Cytometry
The ploidy of parthenogenetic Artemia from Aqqikkol Hu (Xinjiang) was determinated by flow cytometry. The results showed that the Artemia populaton of Aqqikkol Hu (Xinjiang) consisted diploid and tetraploid, the rate of diploid and tetraploid approximated to 80% and 20% respectively. It should conclude that the results of ploidy of parthenogenetic Artemia can be determinated rapidly and exactly by flow cytometry. The new method for the ploidy determination of parthenogenetic Artemia should accumulate the basic data for biological study and application of Artemia.
