Meiotic drive in mice carrying t-complex in their genome

Meiotic drive in mice carrying t-complex in their genome The deviation of alleles and chromosomes from Mendelian inheritance is characteristic of the meiotic drive. This review describes the mechanism in question using the best-studied example of transmitted ratio distortion in the heterozygous male mice carrying t-haplotypes. The t-complex is best model for studying the meiotic drive under laboratory conditions. Putative mechanisms of meiotic drive that influence the frequency of t-haplotypes in natural populations are considered, of which prezygotic selection is the most important. The role of meiotic drive in male hybrid sterility is emphasized.

Abstract

The deviation of alleles and chromosomes from Mendelian inheritance is characteristic of the meiotic drive. This review describes the mechanism in question using the best-studied example of transmitted ratio distortion in the heterozygous male mice carrying t-haplotypes. The t-complex is best model for studying the meiotic drive under laboratory conditions. Putative mechanisms of meiotic drive that influence the frequency of t-haplotypes in natural populations are considered, of which prezygotic selection is the most important. The role of meiotic drive in male hybrid sterility is emphasized. The factors and models that determine the phenomenon of meiotic drive are discussed in detail.
