Imprinting in the endosperm: a possible role in preventing wide hybridization.

Abstract:

Reproductive isolation is considered to play a key part in evolution, and plants and animals have developed a range of strategies that minimize gene flow between species. In plants, these strategies involve either pre-zygotic barriers, such as differences in floral structure and pollen-stigma recognition, or post-zygotic barriers, which are less well understood and affect aspects of seed development ranging from fertilization to maturation. In most angiosperms, a double fertilization event gi...
