Abstract

Speciation accompanies reproductive isolation in natural populations through hybrid sterility or lethality. However, the molecular bases of hybrid lethality are mysterious. In this issue of Developmental Cell, Thomae et al. (2013) demonstrate that Drosophila speciation factors HMR and LHR form a centromeric complex and that increased dosage causes hybrid lethality.
