Fertilization in flowering plants requires a complex series of coordinated events involving interaction between the male and female gametophyte. We report here molecular data on one of the key events underpinning this process -the death of the receptive synergid cell and the coincident bursting of the pollen tube inside the ovule to release the sperms.
