- ... Several pollination studies carried out on different, self-incompatible almond cultivars and seedlings have shown the presence of variable levels of fruit set following self-pollination that could be attributed to partial self-incompatibility (PSI). PSI is an intermediate reproductive behaviour, described in some angiosperm species, which indicates that selfincompatibility is a quantitative and ...

- ... Self-incompatibility (SI) in almond [Prunus dulcis (Miller) D.A.Webb] is of the gametophytic-type and is controlled by the S-locus, which is highly polymorphic and includes two tightly-linked genes expressed in the pistil (as an S-RNase) and in the pollen [as an S haplotype-specific F-box (SFB) protein]. Experimental evidence indicates that other proteins are also needed for the functioning of sel ...
