Loquat (Eriobotrya japonica Lindl.) is a fruit tree species of the Pyrinae subtribe of the Rosaceae that behaves as self incompatible. Since self-incompatibility in the Rosaceae is of the gametophytic type where a stylar ribonuclease (S-RNase) controls the female function of pollen–pistil recognition, consensus primers derived from the alignment of S-RNase sequences from other Pyrinae species were used to search for S-RNases in loquat. As a result, the first four S-RNases were sequenced for… CONTINUE READING
