Self-incompatibility (SI) is a genetically controlled mechanism to prevent inbreeding in flowering plants. Ryegrasses (Lolium spp.) display a gametophytic self-incompatibility response controlled by the two multi-allelic loci S and Z. Our objective is to identify genes involved in the self-incompatibility response in perennial ryegrass, using the cDNA-AFLP technique. The cDNA-AFLP fragments displaying differential gene expression in non-pollinated, crosspollinated and self-pollinated pistils will be mapped in a population, which is characterised for the self-incompatibility genotypes.
