Assistant Professor Masaya Yamamoto continuing a study in Tohoku University, which was performed in Cornell University, revealed the function of glycosylation of the recognition molecule participating in self-recognition reaction after pollination in plants (self-incompatibility).The present result is expected to accelerate elucidation of the molecular mechanism of self-recognition in plants.
