Self-Rejection--a New Kinase Connection

Daphne R. Goring and John C. Walker

Plants have developed an elaborate self-incompatibility response to prevent fertilization by self pollen. In their Perspective, Goring and Walker discuss new work (Murase et al.) that identifies a receptor-like cytoplasmic kinase as a crucial player in the self-incompatibility response.

D. R. Goring is in the Department of Botany, University of Toronto, Toronto, M5S 3B2, Canada. J. C. Walker is in the Division of Biological Sciences, University of Missouri-Columbia, Columbia, MO 65211, USA. E-mail: goring{at}
