Abstract

Buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum Moench) is a heterostylous plant displaying heteromorphic sporophytic self-incompatibility (SI). In order to detect proteins involved in SI, pistils from both long and short styles were isolated and then selfed or cross-pollinated. One-dimensional gel electrophoresis revealed that short pistils 2 h after selfing contained an unique 50 kDa protein. In the two-dimensional electrophoresis two distinct groups of proteins possibly involved in SI response were detected in the short, and one in the long pistils.
