Late in the reproduct ive phase, cell death occurs in both pollen and the pistil.

Franklin , personal communication). , 1999; this issue) has been better documented. In reproductive organs, cysteine proteases have been associated with a number of senescing tissues. For instance, in pea, carpel development is associated with the induction of a thiol-protease (Cercos and Carbonell, 275 1993; Cercos et al. , 1999). , 1990). A mRNA for a flowerexpressed cysteine protease is detected in anther and ovule cells of brinjal, suggesting a participation of these enzymes in cell degenerative processe s in these organs (Xu and Chye, 1999).
