Self-incompatibility in flowering plants is often controlled by a single nuclear gene (the S-gene) having several alleles. This gene prevents fertilization by self-pollen or by pollen bearing either of the two S-alleles expressed in the style. Sequence analysis shows that three alleles of the S gene of Nicotiana alata encode style glycoproteins with regions(More)
A simple new procedure was described for producing a sequential series of overlapping clones for use in DNA sequencing. The technique used single-stranded M13 DNA and complementary DNA oligomers to form specific cleavage and ligation substrates. It was, therefore, independent of the sequence of the DNA cloned into the vector. Deletions of varying sizes were(More)
Self-incompatibility (SI), a genetically controlled mechanism to prevent inbreeding in plants, offers a relatively simple model system for studying the interactions between plant cells or between a plant cell and the secreted product or products of another cell. Examples of two major types of SI, gametophytic and sporophytic, have been studied by cloning(More)
Self-incompatibility (SI) is widely distributed in flowering plants. In this review, early work on the biology, genetics and distribution of SI is summarized. Approaches to understanding the molecular genetics of SI have been made in two systems-Solanaceous species, for example Nicotiana alata, which have gametophytic systems of SI, and Brassica spp, which(More)
Results. Seventy-seven percent of students felt as equally challenged in an online course as in a traditional classroom course, and 85% replied that the online program is more convenient than a traditional program. One hundred percent felt the courses expanded their dental hygiene knowledge while 92% stated the online curriculum contained content not(More)
