Autosomal suppression and fitness costs of an old driving X chromosome in Drosophila testacea

Graeme Keais, SiJia Lu & Steve Perlman
Driving X chromosomes (XDs) are meiotic drivers that bias their own transmission through males by killing Y-bearing gametes. These chromosomes can in theory spread rapidly in populations and cause extinction, but many are found as balanced polymorphisms or as “cryptic” XDs shut down by drive suppressors. The relative likelihood of these outcomes, as well as the evolutionary pathways through which they come about, are not well-understood. An XD was recently discovered in the mycophagous fly,...
