  1. Li H, Yang W. Ligands Switch Model for Pollen-Tube Integrity and Burst. Trends Plant Sci. 2018;23:369-372 pubmed publisher
    ..New results show that the RALF family peptides control pollen-tube integrity and burst by binding to CrRLK1L family receptors and cell wall leucine-rich repeat extensins. ..
  2. Li H, Yang W. RLKs orchestrate the signaling in plant male-female interaction. Sci China Life Sci. 2016;59:867-77 pubmed publisher
    ..Therefore, in this review we will focus mainly on the function and signaling of RLKs in plant male-female interaction and discuss the future prospects on these topics. ..
  3. Li H, Meng J, Yang W. Multilayered signaling pathways for pollen tube growth and guidance. Plant Reprod. 2018;31:31-41 pubmed publisher
    ..Here, we review recent progresses and concepts in understanding the molecular mechanisms governing pollen tube growth and its interactions with the female tissues. We will also discuss the future perspective in this field. ..
