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 cDNAs corresponding to glycoproteins of the female tissues that segregate with particular variants encoded by the putative S locus. These… CONTINUE READING
