Abstract
Recent work on gametophytic self incompatibility in the Solanaceae is considered using N. alata as a model system. Topics covered include the cloning of cDNAs encoding S-glycoproteins; ribonuclease function of the S-glycoproteins; role of S-RNases in the arrest of pollen tube growth; uptake of S-RNases by pollen tubes; and nature of the pollen products of the S-gene.
