The S Gene Family: Genes with Diverse Structures and Functions
The analysis of the self-incompatibility system of Brassica and the isolation of genes derived from the self-incompatibility or S locus has led to the identification of a group of related sequences that is rapidly becoming an extended family. Members of this S gene family have now been reported in Brassica, Arabidopsis, and maize. Thus, this family appears to be ubiquitous in plants, and S genes may yet be discovered in a large number of plant species in both dicots and monocots.
