Exogenous Melatonin Improves Antioxidant Defense in Cucumber Seeds (Cucumis sativus L.) Germinated under Chilling Stress.
The relationship between exogenous melatonin applied into cucumber seeds during osmopriming and modifications of their antioxidant defense was studied. Accumulation of hydrogen peroxide, antioxidant enzyme activities and glutathione pool were investi

Isolation and identification of the gibberellins of Cucumis sativus and Cucumis melo.
Thin-layer chromatography, gas-liquid chromatography, and mass spectrometry were used to identify gibberellins isolated from mature seeds of both Cucumis sativus (cucumber) and Cucumis melo (muskmelon). The gibberellins were extracted and purified by

SELDI-TOF MS-based discovery of a biomarker in Cucumis sativus seeds exposed to CuO nanoparticles.
Metal oxide nanoparticles (NPs) can inhibit plant seed germination and root elongation via the release of metal ions. In the present study, two acute phytotoxicity tests, seed germination and root elongation tests, were conducted on cucumber seeds (C

[Virus particles in phloem exudate from Cucumis sativus L. after infection by Cucumis Virus 2 A].
Sieve tube sap obtained from cucumber plants infected by Cucumis Virus 2 A induced the typical mosaic disease when it was inoculated into healthy plants of the same species. The infectious factor could not be removed by dialysis or by treatment with

Loss-of-Function Mutations in CsMLO1 Confer Durable Powdery Mildew Resistance in Cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.).
Powdery mildew (PM) is a serious fungal disease of cucumber worldwide. The identification of resistance genes is very important for resistance breeding to ensure cucumber production. Here, natural loss-of-function mutations at an MLO homologous locus

Fine Mapping of Virescent Leaf Gene v-1 in Cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.).
Leaf color mutants are common in higher plants that can be used as markers in crop breeding or as an important tool in understanding regulatory mechanisms in chlorophyll biosynthesis and chloroplast development. In virescent leaf mutants, young leave

Three-Dimensional Reconstruction, by TEM Tomography, of the Ultrastructural Modifications Occurring in Cucumis sativus L. Mitochondria under Fe Deficiency.
Mitochondria, as recently suggested, might be involved in iron sensing and signalling pathways in plant cells. For a better understanding of the role of these organelles in mediating the Fe deficiency responses in plant cells, it is crucial to provid

Impact of a snail pellet on the phytoavailability of different metals to cucumber plants (Cucumis sativus L.).
FePO4 based molluscicides (snail pellets) also contain a chelating agent. The influence of the chelating agent, which is intrinsically present in the molluscicide, on the phytoavailability of other metals present in the growth medium was investigated

Sterols of male and female flowers of Cucumis sativus.
Sterols of male and female flowers of Cucumis sativus L. were similar in composition. The principal compound was 24ξ-ethyl-5α-cholesta-7,22-dien-3β-ol. Five other 5α-Δ(7) were detected: 24ξ-methyl-7-ene, 24ξ-ethyl-7-ene, 24-ethyl-7,24(28)Z-diene, 24ξ

Genome-wide identification, characterization, and expression analysis of the MLO gene family in Cucumis sativus.
Mildew resistance locus o (MLO) is a plant-specific seven-transmembrane (TM) gene family. Several studies have revealed that certain members of the MLO gene family mediate powdery mildew susceptibility in three plant species, namely, Arabidopsis, bar
