Abstract:
Cuscuses is marsupials animal (Phalangeridae) which has limited spread in eastern Indonesia (Sulawesi, Maluku, Papua and Timor islands), Australia and Papua New Guinea. The ex-situ and in-situ conservation of cuscuses under captivating condition is an alternative solution to protect from extinction. This study aimed to determine nucleotide sequences and genetic marker on cyt b gene with sequencing method of each species on two provinces. Whole genome DNA was extracted from 22 samples of cuscuses obtained from different habitats, Maluku (13 individuals) and Papua (8 individuals) according to the protocol of Qiamp DNA Blood Mini Kit (Qiagen) and then it was used as template for amplification of cyt b gene by using PCR method. The PCR product were then purified using column chromatography and were used as template for sequencing reaction. Results sequencing of cyt b gene were analyzed using MEGA program versions 6.0. The PCR product gives results nucleotides of 982 bp according to database GeneBank and sequencing product gives results nucleotides of 771 bp. Nucleotides alignment of Phalanger members was found 24 nucleotides distinguishing and Spilocuscus members was found 11 nucleotides distinguishing, which can be used as genetic marker between Phalanger and Spilocuscus members from Papua and Maluku.
