The nucleotide (nt) sequences of the 5'-flanking regions of two Brassica self-incompatibility genes, SLG9 and SRK9, were determined. Their sequences were highly conserved: a region spanning 1.9 kb in the 5'-flanking region was completely identical except for a 1319-bp segment in SLG9. These observations strongly suggest that SLG9 and SRK9 together with their promoter regions were involved in a gene duplication or conversion event which occurred before the 1319-bp SLG9-specific sequence was inserted in SLG9 or deleted in SRK9.
