Many flowering plants have adopted self-incompatibility mechanisms to prevent inbreeding and promote out-crosses. In the Solanaceae, Rosaceae and Scrophulariaceae, two separate genes at the highly polymorphic S-locus control self-incompatibility interactions: the S-RNase gene encodes the pistil determinant and the previously unidentified S-gene encodes the pollen determinant. S-RNases interact with pollen S-allele products to inhibit the growth of self-pollen tubes in the style. Pollen… Expand
Genetic features of a pollen-part mutation suggest an inhibitory role for the Antirrhinum pollen self-incompatibility determinant
TLDR
An inhibitor role of the pollen S in the Plantaginaceae (as represented by Antirrhinum), similar to that found in the Solanaceae is suggested. Expand
S-RNase-based self-incompatibility in Petunia inflata.
TLDR
The protein-degradation model invokes specific degradation of non-self S-RNases in the pollen tube mediated by an SLF, and can explain compatible versus incompatible pollination and the phenomenon of competitive interaction, where SI breaks down in pollen carrying two different S-alleles. Expand
Molecular Biology Of S-Rnase-Based Self-Incompatibility
TLDR
This Chapter presents and discusses the current knowledge about Molecular Biology of S-Rnase-Based Self-Incompatibility, and presents and Discusses the Current Knowledge About Molecular Biology Of S- Rnase (S-Ribonucleases) based Self- incompatibility. Expand
Identification of the pollen self-incompatibility determinant in Papaver rhoeas
TLDR
Identification of PrpS represents a major advance in the understanding of the Papaver self-incompatibility system and contributes to the available information concerning the origins and evolution of cell–cell recognition systems involved in discrimination between self and non-self, which also include histocompatibility systems in primitive chordates and vertebrates.

Molecular analysis of the S-RNase in self-incompatible Solanum chacoense
Self-incompatibility (SI) is the inherited ability of a fertîle hermaphrodite flowering plant to prevent seif-fertilization by blocking the growth of pollen tubes on or inside the pistil. SIExpand
Pollen-expressed F-box gene family and mechanism of S-RNase-based gametophytic self-incompatibility (GSI) in Rosaceae
TLDR
Potential differences in pollen-part function between subfamilies of Rosaceae, Maloideae, and Prunoideae are focused on, and implications for the mechanistic divergence of the S-RNase-based SI are discussed. Expand
Compatibility and incompatibility in S-RNase-based systems.
TLDR
This review concludes that pollen incompatibility is the default condition unless the S-locus F-box protein confers resistance to S-RNase, and two alternative mechanisms have been proposed to explain compatibility and incompatibility. Expand
Biochemical models for S-RNase-based self-incompatibility.
TLDR
A new model for the biochemical mechanism of SI in the Solanaceae is presented, which can explain all SI phenomena and, at the same time, has raised new questions for further study. Expand
RNase-Based Self-Incompatibility: Puzzled by Pollen S[W]
TLDR
This work describes the puzzling evolutionary relationship that exists between the SLF/SFB and S-RNase genes and shows that in most cases cognate pairs of genes are not coevolving in the expected manner. Expand
Recent advances in identification of male specificity determinant and its function in S-RNase-mediated gametophytic self-incompatibility
TLDR
This review described both the identification of pollen specific F-box genes, SLf/SFBs, in Antirrhinum, Petunia and Prunus species and the demonstration of SLF/SFB as pollen determinant together with their functions in GSI response, and the identification and demonstration of S-RNase-mediated gametophytic self-incompatibility response.

S proteins control rejection of incompatible pollen in Petunia inflata
TLDR
It is shown that inhibition of synthesis of S3 and S2 proteins in Petunia inflata plants of S2S3 genotype by the antisense S3 gene resulted in failure of the transgenic plants to reject S3and S2 pollen, providing direct in vivo evidence that S proteins control the self-incompatibility behaviour of the pistil. Expand
S-RNase expressed in transgenic Nicotiana causes S-allele-specific pollen rejection
TLDR
The results show that S-RNases alone are sufficient for pollen rejection in this system, and the promoter of a style-expressed gene from tomato is used to obtain high levels of S- RNase expression in transgenic Nicotiana. Expand
An F-box gene linked to the self-incompatibility (S) locus of Antirrhinum is expressed specifically in pollen and tapetum
TLDR
A novel F-box gene, AhSLF-S2, encoded by the S2 allele, with the expected features of the Sp gene was identified and defined a large gene family, named SLF (S locus F- box) family, which is highly polymorphic and is specifically expressed in tapetum, microspores and pollen grains in an allele-specific manner. Expand
Structural and transcriptional analysis of the self-incompatibility locus of almond: identification of a pollen-expressed F-box gene with haplotype-specific polymorphism.
TLDR
An approximately 70-kb segment of the S locus of the rosaceous species almond, the S haplotype-specific region containing the S-RNase gene, was found to contain two pollen-expressed F-box genes that are likely candidates for pollen S genes. Expand
Genetic mapping and molecular characterization of the self-incompatibility (S) locus in Petunia inflata
TLDR
Recombination analysis of 1205 F2 plants and preliminary chromosome walking results suggest that the S locus is a huge multi-gene complex and all the genes required for SI are contained in the chromosomal region defined by 3.16 and G221. Expand
S-RNase uptake by compatible pollen tubes in gametophytic self-incompatibility
TLDR
Immunocytochemical labelling of pollen tubes growing in styles is used to show accumulation of an S-RNase in the cytoplasm of all pollen-tube haplotypes, thus providing experimental support for the inhibitor model. Expand
Chromosome Walking in the Petunia Inflata Self-Incompatibility (S-) Locus and Gene Identification in an 881-kb Contig Containing S2-RNase
TLDR
An integrated genetic and physical map of the S locus of Petunia inflata is constructed and it is confirmed that seven of these 11 newly identified genes were located in the 881-kb contig. Expand
Genetic analysis of Nicotiana pollen-part mutants is consistent with the presence of an S-ribonuclease inhibitor at the S locus
TLDR
The absence of pollen S deletions in this study and perhaps other studies suggests that pollen S might be required for pollen viability, possibly because its product acts as an S-RNase inhibitor. Expand
Structural and transcriptional analysis of S-locus F-box genes in Antirrhinum
TLDR
Results indicate that both single allelic and tandemly duplicated genes are associated with the S locus in Antirrhinum, a member of the Scrophulariaceae, and likely play important roles in pollen. Expand
Ribonuclease activity of Petunia inflata S proteins is essential for rejection of self-pollen.
TLDR
The results reported here provide direct evidence that the biochemical mechanism of gametophytic self-incompatibility in P. inflata involves the ribonuclease activity of S proteins. Expand
