The interaction between compatible pollen grains and the female stigma of Gladiolus gandavensis has been used as a model system for investigation of cell recognition in plants. The molecular architecture of the receptive stigma surface has been investigated, and determinants binding to both concanavalin A and beta-glucosyl artificial carbohydrate antigen, as well as esterase activity, have been characterized, and conditions for their isolation have been established. The stigma surface, before… CONTINUE READING
