Small, repetitive DNAs contribute significantly to the expanded mitochondrial genome of cucumber. (1/59)

Closely related cucurbit species possess eightfold differences in the sizes of their mitochondrial genomes. We cloned mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) fragments showing strong hybridization signals to cucumber mtDNA and little or no signal to watermelon mtDNA. The cucumber mtDNA clones carried short (30-53 bp), repetitive DNA motifs that were often degenerate, overlapping, and showed no homology to any sequences currently in the databases. On the basis of dot-blot hybridizations, seven repetitive DNA motifs accounted for >13% (194 kb) of the cucumber mitochondrial genome, equaling >50% of the size of the Arabidopsis mitochondrial genome. Sequence analysis of 136 kb of cucumber mtDNA revealed only 11.2% with significant homology to previously characterized mitochondrial sequences, 2.4% to chloroplast DNA, and 15% to the seven repetitive DNA motifs. The remaining 71.4% of the sequence was unique to the cucumber mitochondrial genome. There was <4% sequence colinearity surrounding the watermelon and cucumber atp9 coding regions, and the much smaller watermelon mitochondrial genome possessed no significant amounts of cucumber repetitive DNAs. Our results demonstrate that the expanded cucumber mitochondrial genome is in part due to extensive duplication of short repetitive sequences, possibly by recombination and/or replication slippage.  (+info)

Citrulline, a novel compatible solute in drought-tolerant wild watermelon leaves, is an efficient hydroxyl radical scavenger. (2/59)

Drought-tolerant wild watermelon accumulates high levels of citrulline in the leaves in response to drought conditions. In this work, the hydroxyl radical-scavenging activity of citrulline was investigated in vitro. The second-order rate constant for the reaction between citrulline and hydroxyl radicals was found to be 3.9x10(9) M(-1) s(-1), demonstrating that citrulline is one of the most efficient scavengers among compatible solutes examined so far. Moreover, citrulline effectively protected DNA and an enzyme from oxidative injuries. Liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry analysis revealed that at least four major products were formed by the reaction between citrulline and hydroxyl radicals. Activities of metabolic enzymes were not inhibited by up to 600 mM citrulline, indicating that citrulline does not interfere with cellular metabolism. We reasoned, from these results, that citrulline contributes to oxidative stress tolerance under drought conditions as a novel hydroxyl radical scavenger.  (+info)

Citrulline and DRIP-1 protein (ArgE homologue) in drought tolerance of wild watermelon. (3/59)

Drought-affected plants experience more than just desiccation of their organs due to water deficit. Plants transpire 1000 times more molecules of water than of CO2 fixed by photosynthesis in full sunlight. One effect of transpiration is to cool the leaves. Accordingly, drought brings about such multi-stresses as high temperatures, excess photoradiation and other factors that affect plant viability. Wild watermelon serves as a suitable model system to study drought responses of C3 plants, since this plant survives drought by maintaining its water content without any wilting of leaves or desiccation even under severe drought conditions. Under drought conditions in the presence of strong light, wild watermelon accumulates high concentrations of citrulline, glutamate and arginine in its leaves. The accumulation of citrulline and arginine may be related to the induction of DRIP-1, a homologue of ArgE in Escherichia coli, where it functions to incorporate the carbon skeleton of glutamate into the urea cycle. Immunogold electron microscopy reveals the enzyme to be confined exclusively to the cytosol. DRIP-1 is also induced by treating wild watermelon with 150 mM NaCl, but is not induced following treatment with 100 microM abscisic acid. The salt treatment causes the accumulation of gamma-aminobutyrate, glutamine and alanine, in addition to a smaller amount of citrulline. Citrulline may function as a potent hydroxyl radical scavenger.  (+info)

Molecular characterization of a GA-inducible gene, Cvsus1, in developing watermelon seeds. (4/59)

To understand the molecular mechanisms that control seed development, we isolated a seed-preferential gene from ESTs of developing watermelon seeds. The gene Cvsus1 encodes a protein that is 86% identical to the Vicia faba sucrose synthase expressed in developing seeds. RNA blot analysis showed that Cvsus1 was preferentially expressed in watermelon seeds. We also investigated gene expression levels both in pollinated seeds and in parthenocarpic seeds, which lack zygotic tissues. Whereas the transcript level of Cvsus1 was rapidly increased during normal seed development, the expression was not significantly increased in the parthenocarpic seeds. However, treating the parthenocarpic fruits with GA3 strongly induced Cvsus1 expression, up to the level accumulated in pollinated seeds. These results suggest that Cvsus1 is induced in maternal tissues via signals from the zygotic tissues, and that GA may be one of those signals.  (+info)

Consumption of watermelon juice increases plasma concentrations of lycopene and beta-carotene in humans. (5/59)

Watermelon is a rich natural source of lycopene, a carotenoid of great interest because of its antioxidant capacity and potential health benefits. Assessment of bioavailability of lycopene from foods has been limited to tomato products, in which heat processing promotes lycopene bioavailability. We examined the bioavailability of lycopene from fresh-frozen watermelon juice in a 19-wk crossover study. Healthy, nonsmoking adults (36-69 y) completed three 3-wk treatment periods, each with a controlled, weight-maintenance diet. Treatment periods were preceded by "washout" periods of 2-4 wk during which lycopene-rich foods were restricted. All 23 subjects consumed the W-20 (20.1 mg/d lycopene, 2.5 mg/d beta-carotene from watermelon juice) and C-0 treatments (controlled diet, no juice). As a third treatment, subjects consumed either the W-40 (40.2 mg/d lycopene, 5.0 mg/d beta-carotene from watermelon juice, n = 12) or T-20 treatment (18.4 mg/d lycopene, 0.6 mg/d beta-carotene from tomato juice, n = 10). After 3 wk of treatment, plasma lycopene concentrations for the W-20, W-40, T-20 and C-0 treatments were (least squares means +/- SEM) 1078 +/- 106, 1183 +/- 139, 960 +/- 117 and 272 +/- 27 nmol/L, respectively. Plasma concentrations of beta-carotene were significantly greater after W-20 (574 +/- 49 nmol/L) and W-40 (694 +/- 73 nmol/L) treatments than after the C-0 treatment (313 +/- 27 nmol/L). Plasma lycopene concentrations did not differ at wk 3 after W-20, W-40 and T-20 treatments, indicating that lycopene was bioavailable from both fresh-frozen watermelon juice and canned tomato juice, and that a dose-response effect was not apparent in plasma when the watermelon dose was doubled.  (+info)

Variability and genetic structure of the population of watermelon mosaic virus infecting melon in Spain. (6/59)

The genetic structure of the population of Watermelon mosaic virus (WMV) in Spain was analysed by the biological and molecular characterisation of isolates sampled from its main host plant, melon. The population was a highly homogeneous one, built of a single pathotype, and comprising isolates closely related genetically. There was indication of temporal replacement of genotypes, but not of spatial structure of the population. Analyses of nucleotide sequences in three genomic regions, that is, in the cistrons for the P1, cylindrical inclusion (CI) and capsid (CP) proteins, showed lower similar values of nucleotide diversity for the P1 than for the CI or CP cistrons. The CI protein and the CP were under tighter evolutionary constraints than the P1 protein. Also, for the CI and CP cistrons, but not for the P1 cistron, two groups of sequences, defining two genetic strains, were apparent. Thus, different genomic regions of WMV show different evolutionary dynamics. Interestingly, for the CI and CP cistrons, sequences were clustered into two regions of the sequence space, defining the two strains above, and no intermediary sequences were identified. Recombinant isolates were found, accounting for at least 7% of the population. These recombinants presented two interesting features: (i) crossover points were detected between the analysed regions in the CI and CP cistrons, but not between those in the P1 and CI cistrons, (ii) crossover points were not observed within the analysed coding regions for the P1, CI or CP proteins. This indicates strong selection against isolates with recombinant proteins, even when originated from closely related strains. Hence, data indicate that genotypes of WMV, generated by mutation or recombination, outside of acceptable, discrete, regions in the evolutionary space, are eliminated from the virus population by negative selection.  (+info)

Inheritance of egusi seed type in watermelon. (7/59)

An unusual seed mutant in watermelon (Citrullus lanatus var. lanatus) has seeds with a fleshy pericarp, commonly called egusi seeds. The origin of the phenotype is unknown, but it is widely cultivated in Nigeria for the high protein and carbohydrate content of the edible seeds. Egusi seeds have a thick, fleshy pericarp that appears during the second to third week of fruit development. We studied the inheritance of this phenotype in crosses of normal seeded Charleston Gray and Calhoun Gray with two plant introduction accessions, PI 490383w and PI 560006, having the egusi seed type. We found that the egusi seed type is controlled by a single recessive gene, and the symbol eg was assigned.  (+info)

Stabilization of cucurbitacin E-glycoside, a feeding stimulant for diabroticite beetles, extracted from bitter Hawkesbury watermelon. (8/59)

Cucurbitacins are feeding stimulants for diabroticite beetles, including corn rootworms and cucumber beetles, which can be added to a bait containing an insecticide thereby reducing the levels of other insecticide treatments needed to control these pests. One of them, cucurbitacin E-glycoside, is water soluble and easily processed from mutant bitter Hawkesbury watermelons (BHW) that express elevated levels of cucurbitacin. Storage of BHW extract at room temperature resulted in a 92% reduction of cucurbitacin E-glycoside over two months, while refrigeration or freezing resulted in a 60% loss of the active ingredient during this time. The loss of the active ingredient was correlated with an increase in BHW extract pH from 5 to greater than 9. The increase in pH of the BHW extracts at room temperature appeared to be due to the growth of certain bacteria, especially Bacillusspp. In refrigerated extracts, the pH remained relatively constant, and bacterial growth was dominated by bacteria such as Lactobacilli. An alternative to refrigeration is concentration of BHW extract. One means of concentration is spray drying, but the high sugar content of the BHW extract (20mg/ml glucose, 40mg/ml fructose) makes this technique impractical. Fermentation of the BHW extract by the yeast, Saccharomyces boulardii, eliminated the sugars and did not raise the pH nor alter the cucurbitacin E-glycoside content of the extract. Elimination of the sugars by fermentation produced an extract that could be successfully spray dried. BHW extract fermented by S. boulardii produced a higher level of feeding stimulation for spotted cucumber beetles in laboratory choice tests. When applied to cucumbers, there was no difference in control of spotted and striped cucumber beetles between baits of fresh or fermented juices combined with the same insecticide.  (+info)

*Wax gourd

The wax gourd requires very warm weather to grow but can be stored for many months much like winter squash. Ash gourds of the Indian subcontinent have a white coating with rough texture (hence the name ash gourd, literally, in some vernaculars). South East Asian varieties have a smooth waxy texture. It is one of the few vegetables available during winter in areas of deciduous vegetation, hence its Chinese name literally means 'winter gourd'. The Wax Gourd can typically be stored for 12 months. In India, the wax gourd is recognized for its medicinal properties in the Ayurvedic system of medicine.[8] It is also has significance in spiritual traditions of India and Yoga, where it is identified as a great source of Prana.[10]. In Vietnamese cuisine, it is called bí đao, which is usually used to make soup or stew.[11] When cooked with pork short ribs, the resulting soup is traditionally thought to help produce more milk for breastfeeding mothers.[citation needed].

*Galia melon

The Galia melon, also known as sarda in Southeast Asia, is a type of F1 hybrid melon originating from a cross between the green-flesh melon cultivar 'Ha-Ogen' and the netted-rind melon cultivar 'Krimka'. Developed in Israel at the Ne´ve Yaar Research Center of the Agricultural Research Organisation by the melon breeder Dr. Zvi Karchi,[1] and released in 1973, the Galia melon was named after Karchi's daughter, whose name means "God's wave" in Hebrew.[2]. The average weight for a Galia melon is one kilogram. They have a rounded shape, a dense netting of rough lines on the skin, and become yellow at full maturity; they are sweet and aromatic, with a special aroma and flavor and a very high content of total soluble solids (values up to 18° are possible, although the minimum value to be considered commercially mature is 11°). Ripeness is measured not by softness at the stem, but rather by color and fragrance.[3] Left at room temperature, Galias keep well, but after cutting, uneaten pieces should ...

Citrullus lanatus is a plant species in the family Cucurbitaceae, a vine-like (scrambler and trailer) flowering plant originating in West Africa. It is cultivated for its fruit. The subdivision of this species into two varieties, watermelons (Citrullus lanatus (Thunb.) var. lanatus) and citron melons (Citrullus lanatus var. citroides (L. H. Bailey) Mansf.), originated with the erroneous synonymization of Citrullus lanatus (Thunb.) Matsum. & Nakai and Citrullus vulgaris Schrad. by L.H. Bailey in 1930.[2] Molecular data including sequences from the original collection of Thunberg and other relevant type material, show that the sweet watermelon (Citrullus vulgaris Schrad.) and the bitter wooly melon Citrullus lanatus (Thunb.) Matsum. & Nakai are not closely related to each other.[3] Since 1930, thousands of papers have misapplied the name Citrullus lanatus (Thunb.) Matsum. & Nakai for the watermelon, and a proposal to conserve the name with this meaning was accepted by the relevant nomenclatural ...

Watermelon mosaic virus (WMV) also known as Marrow mosaic virus (Raychaudhuri and Varma, 1975; Varma, 1988), Melon mosaic virus (Iwaki et al., 1984; Komuro, 1962), and until recently Watermelon mosaic virus type 2 (WMV-2), is a plant pathogenic virus that causes viral infection (sometimes referred to as watermelon Mosaic disease) in many different plants. First described on squash in Florida, WMV arose from a unique recombination of genetic material contributed by Soybean mosaic virus (SMV) and Bean common mosaic virus (BCMV) along with Peanut Stripe virus (PSV). According to Florida States Department of Plant Pathology and Agronomy, watermelon mosaic virus is a potyvirus whose particles are 760 nm long flexous rods which has a single strand of RNA. This particular genome structure closely relates WMV to other crop viruses such as Zucchini yellow mosaic virus (ZYMV) and Papaya ringspot virus (PRSV). In its hosts, it induces cylindrical inclusions in the cytoplasm which damages the hosts ...
Researchers interested in evaluating watermelon (Citrullus lanatus (Thunb.) Matsum. & Nakai) cultivars for yield use multiple-row plots to simulate the monoculture system growers use, or single-row plots to save on land, labor, and seeds. We were interested in whether there is a significant interaction of border with center row when diverse cultivars are planted in adjacent rows. Charleston Gray, Crimson Sweet, and Sugar Baby were chosen to represent long, medium, and short vined cultivars, respectively. Cultivars were planted in three-row plots with all nine combinations of the three represented in border and center rows. Each cultivar combination of center row and border rows represented one treatment. The experiment was a randomized complete block with nine plot treatments, two locations (Kinston, Clinton), and three replications. Vine length was measured during the season, and fruit were graded (marketable and cull), counted and weighed at four harvests. Results showed that Charleston Gray ...

Watermelon chlorotic stunt virus (WmCSV) is a bipartite begomovirus (genus Begomovirus, family Geminiviridae) that causes economic losses to cucurbits, particularly watermelon, across the Middle East and North Africa. Recently squash (Cucurbita moschata) grown in an experimental field in Oman was found to display symptoms such as leaf curling, yellowing and stunting, typical of a begomovirus infection. Sequence analysis of the virus isolated from squash showed 97.6-99.9% nucleotide sequence identity to previously described WmCSV isolates for the DNA A component and 93-98% identity for the DNA B component. Agrobacterium-mediated inoculation to Nicotiana benthamiana resulted in the development of symptoms fifteen days post inoculation. This is the first bipartite begomovirus identified in Oman.

The 3′-terminal genomic regions of an isolate of watermelon mosaic virus II (WMVII) and a Florida isolate of zucchini yellow mosaic virus (ZYMV-F) have been cloned. The nucleotide sequence of the WMVII cDNA clone shows the presence of the large nuclear inclusion protein gene, the coat protein gene and 3′ untranslated region. The nucleotide sequence of a ZYMV-F cDNA clone shows the presence of the coat protein gene and 3′ untranslated region. Comparisons of the nucleotide and deduced amino acid sequences of these clones with those from other potyviruses show that WMVII and the soybean mosaic virus N strain are closely related, thus supporting their classification as different strains of the same virus. Our comparisons also indicate that ZYMV-F is a distinct potyvirus type and that its closest relative is WMVII. Phylogenetic analysis using the most-parsimonious branching arrangement derived from the alignment of coat protein gene sequences suggests the existence of two major potyvirus groupings.

Watermelon (Citrullus lanatus (Thunb.) Matsum. & Nakai) is a major crop in the southern United States. Papaya ringspot virus-watermelon strain (PRSV-W, formerly Watermelon mosaic virus-1) and Zucchini yellow mosaic virus (ZYMV) affect all agricultural species of the Cucurbitaceae and are of great economic importance because of their destructiveness. Watermelon has not been screened extensively for resistance to PRSV-W. Although there is a resistance source for ZYMV resistance, the identification of additional sources of resistance to ZYMV would be highly desirable since the initial sources of resistance are temperature dependent, or not resistant to some of the more severe strains of the virus. The objectives of this study were 1) to screen the USDA watermelon germplasm collection along with available watermelon cultivars for PRSV-W resistance; 2) to verify the disease rating for the most resistant and most susceptible accessions; 3) to determine the genetic control of PRSV-W resistance; and ...
Spermatogenesis in Rat.". Previous studies confirmed antioxidants have significant effect on infertility by their role on reactive oxygen species. The aim of the study was to see effect of this herb on spermatogenesis.Wistar male rats (n=20) were allocated into two groups, control group (n=10) and Citrullus vulgaris (C.V) group (n=10) that received 55mg.kg-1.day-1 C.V by gavage method for four weeks; however, the control group just received an equal volume of distilled water daily. Animals were kept in standard condition. In 28th day, testicle tissues were collected then prepared for sperm analysis.. Results showed sperm parameters significantly increased in experimental group in comparison to control group.They concluded: "Since in our study 55mg.kg-1 (C.V) has significantly increased sperm population, motility and viability, it seems that using it in infertile patients has beneficial effects."Also, researchers have investigated the effect of watermelon (Citrullus lanatus) flesh extract on ...

Seeds of watermelon [Citrullus lanatus (Thunb.) Matsum and Nakai, cv. Crimson Sweet] were used to investigate the effects of different priming techniques on seed germination and early seedling growth. The seeds were soaked in solutions of 0.2% gibberellin (50 mg L–1 gibberellic acid), 0.2% cytokinin (90 mg L–1 kinetin), 0.2% potassium nitrate (2 g L–1 KNO3), 0.2% calcium nitrate [2 g L–1 Ca(NO3)2] or water (hydropriming) for 6 h at 25°C. After drying, five replicates of 25 seeds were distributed in plastic boxes with blotter paper and kept into a seed germinator at 26°C for 12 days. The different priming treatments significantly affect the measurements of the seed germination and growth of watermelon seedlings. The germination of watermelon seeds ranged from 0 to 100%, and was significantly greater when seeds were subjected to priming with GA3, KNO3, Ca(NO3)2 and water (control), and lower under cytokinin (CK) priming. The seed priming with 0.2% solution of CK resulted

An international team led by Beijing Academy of Agriculture and Forestry Sciences, BGI, and other institutes has completed the genomic sequence of watermelon (Citrullus lanatus) and the resequencing of 20 watermelon accessions. The genomic data presented in this study will shape future efforts on watermelon genetics and evolutionary research, and also provide an invaluable resource for other plants research and crop genetic improvement.
For the watermelon portion of this project, the genome of the watermelon heirloom cultivar Charleston Gray has been sequenced using 454 technology. In collaboration with scientists at Cornell, we conducted Genotyping-by-Sequencing (using the watermelon genome sequence as reference) for 95 watermelon accessions and also for populations segregating for zucchini yellow mosaic virus (ZYMV)-resistance, discovering over 400,000 high quality single nucleotide polymorphic markers representing most regions of the genome. These single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) data will be made available for the public through the International Cucurbit Genomic Initiative website (www.ICuGi.org). We also cooperated with a Research Plant Pathologist at Charleston to develop and release three Citrullus lanatus var. citroides lines that exhibit resistance to Fusarium wilt (FW). In cooperation with a Nematologist at Charleston, genetic populations of watermelon formed by crossing wild accessions exhibiting resistant and ...
Watermelon (Citrullus lanatus var. lanatus, family Cucurbitaceae) is a vine-like (scrambler and trailer) flowering plant originally from southern Africa. It is a large, sprawling annual plant with coarse, hairy pinnately-lobed leaves and white to yellow flowers. It is grown for its edible fruit, also known as a watermelon, which is a special kind of berry botanically called a pepo. The fruit has a smooth hard rind, usually green with dark green stripes or yellow spots, and a juicy, sweet interior flesh, usually deep red to pink, but sometimes orange, yellow, or white, with many seeds.. ...
Background Modern watermelon (Citrullus lanatus L.) cultivars share a narrow genetic base due to many years of selection for desirable horticultural qualities. Wild subspecies within C. lanatus are important potential sources of novel alleles for watermelon breeding, but successful trait introgression into elite cultivars has had limited success. The application of marker assisted selection (MAS) in watermelon is yet to be realized, mainly due to the past lack of high quality genetic maps. Recently, a number of useful maps have become available, however these maps have few common markers, and were constructed using different marker sets, thus, making integration and comparative analysis among maps difficult. The objective of this research was to use single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) anchor markers to construct an integrated genetic map for C. lanatus. Results Under the framework of the high density genetic map, an integrated genetic map was constructed by merging data from four independent ...

Universal Press, Raleigh, North Carolina. Interpretive Summary: Technical Abstract: Zucchini yellow mosaic virus (ZYMV)-resistance was previously identified in Citrullus lanatus var. lanatus U.S. Plant Introduction (PI) 595203, and inheritance studies indicated that the ZYMV-resistance is conferred by a single recessive gene. In this study we examined the inheritance of resistance to the original ZYMV Florida strain (ZYMV-FL) using F1, F2 and reciprocal BC1 populations derived from PI 595203 and the watermelon cultivar New Hampshire Midget(NHM). The results confirmed that PI 595203 is resistant to ZYMV-FL and the resistance was conferred by a single recessive gene (zym). A study was initiated to identify DNA markers closely linked to the gene conferring the ZYMV resistance. Genomic DNA was isolated ...
Ten nonfluorescent Pseudomonas strains isolated from water-soaked lesions on cotyledons of plants of five Citrullus lanatus (watermelon) plant introductions were characterized and compared phenotypically with 22 other pseudomonads. The strains were distinguished phenotypically from other known plant pathogenic pseudomonads. The watermelon bacterium was aerobic. Cells were rod-shaped, gram negative, and motile by means of a single polar flagellum. They were nonfluorescent and grew at 41°C but not at 4°C. Oxidase production and the 2-ketogluconate reaction were positive. The 10 strains utilized β-alanine, L-leucine, D-serine, n-propanal, ethanol, ethanolamine, citrate, and fructose for growth. No growth occurred with sucrose or glucose. Their deoxyribonucleic acid base composition was 66 ± 1 mol% guanine plus cytosine. The bacterium is phenotypically similar to P. pseudoalcaligenes but differs from it in being pathogenic to watermelon, Cucumis melo (cantaloupe), Cucumis satiwus (cucumber), and

Citrullus lanatus is a plant species in the family Cucurbitaceae, a vine-like flowering plant originally from West Africa. It is cultivated for its fruit.
Directions Divide 1 serving (4 g) into 4 equal doses and take them spread out evenly during the day. The most precise dosing is 50 milligrams per 1 kg bodyweight daily. Use this product in conjunction with food as part of a healthy, balanced diet, not as a substitute for such.. CITRULLINE MALATE. 3000 mg per serving. Citrulline is combined with Malic Acid to form Citrulline Malate. The amino acid Citrulline occurs in watermelon (Citrullus lanatus), while Malic Acid is an organic acid that is abundant in nature (e.g. in fruits). Many proteins contain Citrulline and both ingredients are key intermediates in metabolic cycles ...
The organic compound l-citrulline is an α-amino acid and is considered non-essential. It is an amino acid that participates in and is a key intermediate in the important Urea cycle which is the pathway by which mammals excrete ammonia.. The rind of watermelon (Citrullus lanatus) is the highest source of l-citrulline. Garlic and onions also have some trace amounts of l-citrulline. Due to the fact that these food sources have little amounts of l-citrulline, it is necessary to consume a l-citrulline supplement to achieve the therapeutic effects. L-Citrulline is an amino acid that plays an important role in nitric oxide metabolism and regulation. L-Citrulline is converted to L-Arginine in the body to support L-Arginine and nitric oxide levels. Increased production of nitric oxide (NO) promotes vascular dilation which improves oxygen and blood circulation throughout the body. The ingestion of l-citrulline can abrogate the state of oxidative stress and reverse the progression of atherosclerosis. This ...
Most of the published studies on cytokinins in fruit, including grape [23-25], strawberry [20], tomato [19], apple [65], watermelon (Citrullus lanatus (Thunb.) Mansf.) [66], Japanese pear (Pyrus serotina L.) [67] and persimmon [68], have utilized bioassays, based on changes in cell proliferation or pigment accumulation, to determine the concentration of active cytokinins. Across all fruit species, high cytokinin activity was reported in young fruit progressing through the cell division phase, whereas activities were low or undetectable in ripening fruit. This seems to contradict the ripening-associated increase in iP concentrations reported for four grapevine cultivars (Figs. 1 and 2a), tomato and strawberry (Fig. 4) in this work, but it has to be considered that the above mentioned bioassays were mostly using tZ, and never iP, as the reference cytokinin. Detectable tZ concentrations were found to be restricted to pre-ripening strawberries (Fig. 4) and in pre-veraison grapes, seeds seemed to be ...

Urease is a nickel-dependent amidohydrolase that catalyses the decomposition of urea into carbamate and ammonia, a reaction that constitutes an important source of nitrogen for bacteria, fungi and plants. It is recognized as a potential antimicrobial target with an impact on medicine, agriculture, and the environment. The list of possible urease inhibitors is continuously increasing, with a special interest in those that interact with and block the flexible active site flap. We show that disulfiram inhibits urease in Citrullus vulgaris (CVU), following a non-competitive mechanism, and may be one of this kind of inhibitors. Disulfiram is a well-known thiol reagent that has been approved by the FDA for treatment of chronic alcoholism. We also found that other thiol reactive compounds (l-captopril and Bithionol) and quercetin inhibits CVU. These inhibitors protect the enzyme against its full inactivation by the thiol-specific reagent Aldrithiol (2,2′-dipyridyl disulphide, DPS), suggesting that the three
This list of melons includes members of the plant family Cucurbitaceae with edible, fleshy fruit (e.g. gourds or cucurbits). The word "melon" can refer to either the plant or specifically to the fruit. Many different cultivars have been produced, particularly of muskmelons. Although the melon is a botanical fruit (specifically, a berry), some varieties may be considered culinary vegetables rather than fruits. The word melon derives from Latin melopepo, which is the latinization of the Greek μηλοπέπων (mēlopepon), meaning "melon", itself a compound of μῆλον (mēlon), "apple" + πέπων (pepōn), amongst others "a kind of gourd or melon"..

Watermelon is an important crop for human consumption with global production of 105 million tons in 2012 (FAOSTAT). China is the largest producer with 70 million tons (66.43% of total global production). In the U.S., the fresh market value was approximately $460 million in 2014, with production of over 1.45 billion kg grown on over 48,000 hectares (USDA Economic Research Service). Florida, Georgia, Texas, Arizona, and California are the major watermelon-producing states and account for about 44 percent of US watermelon production. Since the early years of the 21st century, seedless watermelons (triploid hybrid cultivars) have been the primary type grown commercially for the U.S. market (United States Department of Agriculture, National Agricultural Statistics Service 2016), accounting for 85 percent of total watermelon shipments in the United States in 2014. However, seeded (diploid) watermelons are still produced and consumed throughout the world, mainly in Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and ...

I had a weird feeling that the Tangle Teezer was doing to my hair what the Denman did to it, left it with splits all throughout the shaft and multiple splits on the ends. So, I started looking for reviews to see if the Tangle Teezer was doing this to anyone...I do a search today and see this post! I checked my hair today and was horrified at what I found! Multiple splits on single strands and major breakage!!!!! I knew I should have trusted my gut. Now I have to figure out how to get my hair back into shape without chopping it all off :.( I had no idea that my hair was that fragile, but I should have known! Even though the teeth on the Teezer is more flexible than the Denman, the teeth are the same thus doing the same damage to my poor strands. Im not saying it will have the same affect on everyones hair, but beware!!! And I did not abuse it. I only used it on wash days to detangle with conditioner in my hair.. ...
Cravings around pollen HQ are a little different to your normal office, this weeks being a constant demand for watermelon - fresh, juiced, in a smoothie, shaken with mint and vodka, weve heard it all (and satisfied most). And understandably - its the perfect fruit for a warm summers day: light, refreshing, juicy and perfectly sweet. With its distinct green striped shell, and bright pink flesh, watermelon is thought to originate from Africa, and varies a lot from the other types of melon, being more watery with a less intense flavour. You can find them year round, but theyre at their best, and available in abundance from June through to September. Picking the perfect watermelon can be an art form in itself - a ripe melon should sound hollow when tapped and feel heavy for its size (yes were those people you see at the supermarket tapping every watermelon before buying one). The skin should be hard too, not bruised, cracked or spotted and not give too much when pressed. If youre buying it ...
This article discusses why its better to store a watermelon at room temperature rather than in a refrigerator. Watermelons contain the antioxidant lycopene, which helps give it its red color. After being picked, watermelons will continue to develop lycopene and beta-carotene, but not if theyre cold. Watermelons kept at 70 degrees will have as much as 40% more lycopene and 139% more beta-carotene. Refrigerated melons also decay twice as fast ...

In this study carried out in 2009 and 2010 growing seasons, effect of rootstocks on plant nutrition partitioning in grafted watermelon onto four gourd rootstocks was investigated. Ferro, RS841 (Cucurbita maxima x C. moschata) and Argentario and Macis (Lagenaria hybrid) were used as rootstocks. Crimson Tide and Crisby watermelon cultivars were used as scion. Grafted and ungrafted seedlings were produced by a commercial seedling company. Plants were grafted by one cotyledon grafting techniques. Experiment was conducted in Alata Horticultural Research Station inMersin. The grafted plants were planted under low tunnel in early spring and regular cultural practices for watermelon were applied. Plant nutrition concentrations were determined in leaf, fruit rind, fruit flesh and seeds. Leaf sample was taken at flowering stage, rind, flesh and seed sample were taken from fully mature fruit. Nitrogen concentration was determined by modified Kjheldahl methods. Phosphorous concentration was determined by
Ángeles Márquez, Quality director at Agrupalmería, outlined the nutritional and healthy properties of melons and watermelons, both rich in water, fibre, vitamins or antioxidants. In the case of watermelons, studies have revealed that, in addition to these, they also provide lycopene, a potent antioxidant considered a preventive agent for various types of cancer and with positive effects on the cardiovascular system; they are also a source of substantial amounts of vitamins A, C, and some of group B. Lastly, watermelon acts as a natural Viagra, given the vasodilator effect of lycopene, which gives elasticity to arteries and significantly improves the circulatory system ...
As you know that every fruit contain carbohydrates and sugars. Due to their sweetness, some of the fruits have high levels of glycemic index. People with diabetes should have taken care of their glycemic load while taking any fruit into their diet. Glycemic load is the combination of carbohydrates and glycemic index of the fruit that is being consumed. Watermelon is typically used in summer season. It includes vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin B-6, potassium, magnesium, dietary fiber, iron and calcium.. Diabetes is a disorder in which body fails to use the sugar that is absorbed by the meal. So diabetic patients have needed to pay special attention on their diet. Due to the presence of most of the healthy nutrients, Watermelon is considered good for diabetic patients. Most of the studies have shown that consuming watermelon can reduce the risk of many diabetes-related complications. Fruits used in moderate amounts and those fruits that are having low glycemic index will less likely to increase the ...
Although I dont know much about the Kate Morgan diet, Id say it would have something to do with the Glycemic Index of watermelon which is between 75-80. Low GI is classified as 55 and under so watermelon is a food that rapidly increases bloodsugar shortly after ingesting it. This rapid increase then results in sky rocketing blood sugar which forces more insulin to be released to mop up the surge and store it as fat not giving you enough time to burn it off and making you feel more hungry shortly afterwards. Watermelon also has very little fibre. A diet high in fruits and fructose also increases the load on the Liver as fructose is digested differently than other sugars so Id recommend eating fruit as a part of a meal so that it is digested with other complex carbs and protein etc ...

Watermelons could do more than grace the tables at picnics across the land: They could also serve as a source of biofuel. Researchers fermented watermelon juice to produce ethanol, according to a study published in Biotechnology for Biofuels, and while the melons arent likely to become a primary biofuel crop, the process could help out farmers.. Nearly one-fifth of the watermelon crop grown in the United States is left in the fields after harvest because of defects on the melons rinds. "Its not that theres anything wrong with the melon on the inside, but our only method of judgment is the outside," said [lead author] Wayne Fish [Greenwire]. Although farmers often till the abandoned melons into the soil, the value of the nutrients provided by this practice is much less than the overall cost to farmers of losing so much of their crop..

The dwarf phenotype is one of the important traits for plant architecture, and it can increase plant density and land utilization especially for protected cultivation. Several dwarf genes have been identified in watermelon, but most of them were not mapped or cloned. In this study, the Cldw1 gene was primary mapped on watermelon chromosome 9 by bulked segregate analysis (BSA-seq) using F2 plants derived from the cross of a normal line WT4 and a dwarf line WM102. The candidate region identified by BSA-seq was subsequently validated and confirmed by linkage analysis using 30 SSR markers in a F2 population with 124 plants. The Cldw1 gene was further fine mapped in a large population with 1053 F2 plants by chromosome walking, and it was delimited into a candidate region of 106 kb. There were six gene predicted in the candidate region and only the gene Cla010337 was identified with two SNPs and a single nucleotide deletion in the coding region in WM102. A dCAPS marker was developed from the single nucleotide

In this experiment 240 Hy-Line (W-36) laying hens from 65 to 75 weeks distributed in 5 treatments and 4 replicates (12 birds per replicate) in a completely randomized design were used. The amounts of watermelon skin meal (WSM) used to set the treatments were 0, 0.5, 1, 1.5 and 2% in 1 to 5 experimental groups. The results showed that using WSM up to 2% significantly improved the performance and egg traits of laying hens (P|0.05). The highest amounts of egg weight, egg mass and egg production percentage, the best feed conversion, the lowest feed price for production per kilogram of egg, the highest albumen quality percentage were observed by using 2% WSM. By using 2% WSM the eggshell and yolk weight significantly decreased (P|0.05). The overall results indicated that in laying hens, using watermelon skin meal up to 2% of diets, significantly improved their performance and reduced the production cost.

RAPD markers were used to determine the genetic relationships and evaluating similarity among some cucurbits species. Thirteen RAPD primers were used to amplify DNA extracted from the leaves of 10 cucurbit species using CTAB method. A total of 227 bands were amplified of which 225 showed polymorphism among the 10 species. PCR-RAPD analysis showed a number of differences in the size and number of bands among the species, which means that there are genetical differences among the studied cucurbit species. Based on these markers, genetic similarity coefficients were calculated and a dendrogram was constructed. The dendrogram analysis delineated three major clusters. The first cluster consisted of one group which comprised Cucurbita moschata and C. pepo at a level of 38.6 % genetic similarity. The second cluster consisted of four groups: Group I comprised Luffa aegyptiaca at a level of 20.6 % genetic similarity. Group II comprised the closely related species Cucumis melo var.
Downy mildew of cucurbits, Pseudoperonospora cubensis, is found annually on squash, cucumbers, pumpkins, muskmelons, and other cucurbits in Florida. The disease occurs on watermelons yearly in the South Florida, but in northern Florida, it may be present in some years but not others. Although downy mildew of all cucurbits is caused by the same species, strains within the species seem to exist. It is not uncommon to see squash, cantaloupe, and cucumber severely diseased by downy mildew whereas nearby watermelons show no signs of the disease.. Although downy mildew can kill plants severely infected at an early stage, downy mildew typically reduces yield, fruit quality, and harvesting time by causing leaf infections that impair photosynthesis in the plant.. Leaf symptoms can be used to diagnose downy mildew in the field in some cases. On cucurbits, other than watermelon, small yellowish spots occur on the upper leaf surface initially away from the leaf margin. Later, a more brilliant yellow ...
Cucumis melo L., belonging to the Cucurbitaceae family, is cultivated on more than 23,000 ha in Italy. Cantaloupe (C. melo L. var. cantalupensis Naudin) is the most popular variety. In summer 2010, a previously unknown rot was observed on fruits produced in Italy and marketed in the Piedmont Region of northern Italy. Early symptoms on fruit consisted of irregular, brown, soft, sunken lesions up to 10 cm in diameter. No surface mold was visible and pycnidia were not present. Internally, the decay is adjacent to the sunken area of the fruits surface and is soft, water soaked, spongy, with a nearly circular margin, and easily separated from healthy tissues. Fragments (approximately 3 mm3) were taken from the margin of the internal diseased tissues, cultured on potato dextrose agar (PDA), and incubated at 24 ± 1°C, (16 h of light and 8 h of darkness). Fungal colonies initially appeared coarse, at first whitish then buff brown, and produced dark pycnidia 0.5 mm in diameter, which exuded numerous ...
Gastric antral vascular ectasia (GAVE) is a rare, but serious, cause of upper gastrointestinal bleeding (4% of all gastric hemorrhages). The endoscopic findings are characteristic: linear images, oriented radially and converging on the pylorus (watermelon stomach1,4).. This condition is associated with underlying chronic diseases, mostly with liver cirrhosis. In autoimmune diseases, it is related to the presence of Raynauds phenomenon, and is the form most widely reported of the limited subtype of scleroderma (calcinosis, Raynauds phenomenon, esophageal dysmotility, sclerodactyly, telangiectasia [CREST syndrome]).5,6 The largest series of patients with GAVE includes 45 individuals, 62% of whom also had a connective tissue disease, predominantly with Raynauds phenomenon (31%) and sclerodactyly (20%).7. The etiology and pathogenesis of GAVE are unknown; one hypothesis is that the histological changes, especially in the lamina propria, are due to a fibromuscular proliferation, vascular ...
