Strains of Drosophila melanogaster bearing the male recombination factor 23.5 MRF induce hybrid dysgenesis in a way which is highly reminiscent of the P-M system, and, most probably, causally related to the activity of the transposable element hobo. We have investigated potential interactions between the two systems of hybrid dysgenesis by studying mixed lines derived from bidirectional crosses between 23.5 MRF and P strains, and analyzed their potentials to induce or suppress the occurrence of… CONTINUE READING
