Style proteins of a wild tomato (Lycopersicon peruvianum) associated with expression of self-incompatibility Academic Article uri icon


  • The identification, isolation and aminoterminal sequencing of two S-genotype-associated proteins from style extracts of Lycopersicon peruvianum Mill. is reported. There is a high level of homology between these two sequences and with the amino-terminal sequences of other S-allele-associated glycoproteins isolated from Nicotiana alata Link et Otto. These sequences were obtained by a new high-sensitivity method of selected twodimensional gel analysis followed by electroelution and purification of proteins by inverse-gradient high-performance liquid chromatography before sequencing.
