Self-incompatible Brassica napus ssp. oleifera lines were generated by introgressing the S-locus from the self-incompatible B. napus ssp. rapifera Z line into the self-compatible cultivars, Topas and Regent, resulting in T2 and R2, respectively. Screening of a cDNA library made from R2 stigma RNA produced several candidate SLG (S-locus glycoprotein) cDNAs. One of the cDNAs, A14, was found to be represented in only the R2, T2 and Z lines. In addition, the corresponding A14 gene was demonstrated to segregate with the T2 self-incompatibility phenotype in an F2 population derived from a cross between T2 and Topas, and to exhibit high mRNA levels in the stigmas prior to anthesis. Sequence analysis of the A14 cDNA revealed close homology to B. oleracea SLG alleles associated with a Class I high activity self-incompatibility phenotype.
