The expression of self-incompatibility (SI) rejection patterns in 29 accessions of wildBeta species was studied at the anatomical level. Three different SI-related pollen tube rejection patterns were observed: (1) The pollen germinate from many pores and the pollen tubes are very short, often with swollen tips. (2) The pollen germinate and grow along the stigmatic papillae, where the self-incompatibility response takes place at the basis of the stigmatic papillae. (3) The pollen germinate and… CONTINUE READING
