Reproduction in plants rivals the complexity of the process in animals. Recently, several genes that are expressed at specific stages during male gametogenesis have been cloned. These anther-specific genes are providing tools with which to study the cis- and trans-acting factors that regulate gene expression during pollen formation. Sequence analysis of the coding regions of some of these abundantly expressed anther genes is providing unexpected insights into the cell-cell interactions occurring during gamete formation and fertilization.
