A Protamine Knockdown Mimics the Function of Sd in Drosophila melanogasterL. F. Gingell and J. R. McLean, G3-Genes Genomes Genetics, 10:2111-2115. 2020.
Segregation Distorter (SD) is an autosomal meiotic drive system found worldwide in natural populations of Drosophila melanogaster. This gene complex induces the preferential and nearly exclusive transmission of the SD chromosome in SD/SD+ males. This selfish propagation occurs ...
