This paper develops methods to reason about graph transformation rules for proving the preservation of structural properties, especially global properties on reachability. We characterize a graph transformation rule with an applicability condition specifying the matching conditions of the rule on a host graph as well as the properties to be preserved during the transformation. Our previous work has demonstrated the possibility to reason about a graph transformation at rulelevel with applicability conditions restricted to Boolean combinations of edge expressions. We now extend the approach to handle the applicability conditions containing transitive closure of edges, which implicitly refer to an unbounded number of nodes. We show how these can be internalized into a finite pattern graph in order to enable verification of global properties on paths instead of local properties on edges only.
