S gene complex

(Science: molecular biology) genes coding for molecular components of the pollen stigma recognition system in the cabbage genus brassica). The gene products govern the self incompatibility response and include a glycoprotein found on the stigma surface and a lectin on the pollen grain surface that binds to the stigma glycoprotein.
