In Prunus, the self-incompatibility (S-) locus region is <70 kb. Two genes--the S-RNase, which encodes the functional female recognition component, and the SFB gene, which encodes the pollen recognition component--must co-evolve as a genetic unit to maintain functional incompatibility. Therefore, recombination must be severely repressed at the S-locus.(More)
