Description: We describe the first microsatellite loci isolated from the giant otter (Pteronura brasiliensis), an endangered mustelid endemic to South America. Fourteen di- and trinucleotide polymorphic loci were characterised in fourteen individuals from the Pantanal wetlands, Central Brazil. Number of alleles per locus ranged from 2 to 5, and average observed heterozygosity was 0.577. Two loci were in linkage disequilibrium, and one further locus deviated from Hardy?Weinberg equilibrium, probably due to the presence of null alleles. The transferability of these markers to two other mustelids (Lontra longicaudis and Eira barbara) and to the mephitid Conepatus semistriatus was also evaluated. These loci are useful to study the ecology and evolution of these species.
