Molecular cloning and tissue-specific expression of an anionic peroxidase in zucchini. (1/164)

A calcium-pectate-binding anionic isoperoxidase (APRX) from zucchini (Cucurbita pepo) was purified and subjected to N-terminal amino acid microsequencing. The cDNA encoding this enzyme was obtained by reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction from a cDNA library. It encoded a mature protein of 309 amino acids exhibiting all of the sequence characteristics of a plant peroxidase. Despite the presence of a C-terminal propeptide, APRX was found in the apoplast. APRX protein and mRNA were found in the root, hypocotyls, and cotyledons. In situ hybridization showed that the APRX-encoding gene was expressed in many different tissues. The strongest expression was observed in root epidermis and in some cells of the stele, in differentiating tracheary elements of hypocotyl, in the lower and upper epidermis, in the palisade parenchyma of cotyledons, and in lateral and adventitious root primordia. In the hypocotyl hook there was an asymmetric expression, with the inner part containing more transcripts than the outer part. Treatment with 2,3,5-triiodobenzoic acid reduced the expression of the APRX-encoding gene in the lower part of the hypocotyl. Our observations suggest that APRX could be involved in lignin formation and that the transcription of its gene was related to auxin level.  (+info)

Crystal structure of a ribonuclease from the seeds of bitter gourd (Momordica charantia) at 1.75 A resolution. (2/164)

The ribonuclease MC1 (RNase MC1) from seeds of bitter gourd (Momordica charantia) consists of 190 amino acid residues with four disulfide bridges and belongs to the RNase T(2) family, including fungal RNases typified by RNase Rh from Rhizopus niveus and RNase T(2) from Aspergillus oryzae. The crystal structure of RNase MC1 has been determined at 1.75 A resolution with an R-factor of 19.7% using the single isomorphous replacement method. RNase MC1 structurally belongs to the (alpha+beta) class of proteins, having ten helices (six alpha-helices and four 3(10)-helices) and eight beta-strands. When the structures of RNase MC1 and RNase Rh are superposed, the close agreement between the alpha-carbon positions for the total structure is obvious: the root mean square deviations calculated only for structurally related 151 alpha-carbon atoms of RNase MC1 and RNase Rh molecules was 1.76 A. Furthermore, the conformation of the catalytic residues His-46, Glu-105, and His-109 in RNase Rh can be easily superposed with that of the possible catalytic residues His-34, Glu-84, and His-88 in RNase MC1. This observation strongly indicates that RNase MC1 from a plant origin catalyzes RNA degradation in a similar manner as fungal RNases.  (+info)

Differential induction of plant volatile biosynthesis in the lima bean by early and late intermediates of the octadecanoid-signaling pathway. (3/164)

Plants are able to respond to herbivore damage with de novo biosynthesis of an herbivore-characteristic blend of volatiles. The signal transduction initiating volatile biosynthesis may involve the activation of the octadecanoid pathway, as exemplified by the transient increase of endogenous jasmonic acid (JA) in leaves of lima bean (Phaseolus lunatus) after treatment with the macromolecular elicitor cellulysin. Within this pathway lima bean possesses at least two different biologically active signals that trigger different biosynthetic activities. Early intermediates of the pathway, especially 12-oxo-phytodienoic acid (PDA), are able to induce the biosynthesis of the diterpenoid-derived 4,8, 12-trimethyltrideca-1,3,7,11-tetraene. High concentrations of PDA result in more complex patterns of additional volatiles. JA, the last compound in the sequence, lacks the ability to induce diterpenoid-derived compounds, but is highly effective at triggering the biosynthesis of other volatiles. The phytotoxin coronatine and amino acid conjugates of linolenic acid (e.g. linolenoyl-L-glutamine) mimic the action of PDA, but coronatine does not increase the level of endogenous JA. The structural analog of coronatine, the isoleucine conjugate of 1-oxo-indanoyl-4-carboxylic acid, effectively mimics the action of JA, but does not increase the level of endogenous JA. The differential induction of volatiles resembles previous findings on signal transduction in mechanically stimulated tendrils of Bryonia dioica.  (+info)

Phloem long-distance transport of CmNACP mRNA: implications for supracellular regulation in plants. (4/164)

Direct support for the concept that RNA molecules circulate throughout the plant, via the phloem, is provided through the characterisation of mRNA from phloem sap of mature pumpkin (Cucurbita maxima) leaves and stems. One of these mRNAs, CmNACP, is a member of the NAC domain gene family, some of whose members have been shown to be involved in apical meristem development. In situ RT-PCR analysis revealed the presence of CmNACP RNA in the companion cell-sieve element complex of leaf, stem and root phloem. Longitudinal and transverse sections showed continuity of transcript distribution between meristems and sieve elements of the protophloem, suggesting CmNACP mRNA transport over long distances and accumulation in vegetative, root and floral meristems. In situ hybridization studies conducted on CmNACP confirmed the results obtained using in situ RT-PCR. Phloem transport of CmNACP mRNA was proved directly by heterograft studies between pumpkin and cucumber plants, in which CmNACP transcripts were shown to accumulate in cucumber scion phloem and apical tissues. Similar experiments were conducted with 7 additional phloem-related transcripts. Collectively, these studies established the existence of a system for the delivery of specific mRNA transcripts from the body of the plant to the shoot apex. These findings provide insight into the presence of a novel mechanism likely used by higher plants to integrate developmental and physiological processes on a whole-plant basis.  (+info)

Conservative mutation Met8 --> Leu affects the folding process and structural stability of squash trypsin inhibitor CMTI-I. (5/164)

Protein molecules can accommodate a large number of mutations without noticeable effects on their stability and folding kinetics. On the other hand, some mutations can have quite strong effects on protein conformational properties. Such mutations either destabilize secondary structures, e.g., alpha-helices, are incompatible with close packing of protein hydrophobic cores, or lead to disruption of some specific interactions such as disulfide cross links, salt bridges, hydrogen bonds, or aromatic-aromatic contacts. The Met8 --> Leu mutation in CMTI-I results in significant destabilization of the protein structure. This effect could hardly be expected since the mutation is highly conservative, and the side chain of residue 8 is situated on the protein surface. We show that the protein destabilization is caused by rearrangement of a hydrophobic cluster formed by side chains of residues 8, Ile6, and Leu17 that leads to partial breaking of a hydrogen bond formed by the amide group of Leu17 with water and to a reduction of a hydrophobic surface buried within the cluster. The mutation perturbs also the protein folding. In aerobic conditions the reduced wild-type protein folds effectively into its native structure, whereas more then 75% of the mutant molecules are trapped in various misfolded species. The main conclusion of this work is that conservative mutations of hydrophobic residues can destabilize a protein structure even if these residues are situated on the protein surface and partially accessible to water. Structural rearrangement of small hydrophobic clusters formed by such residues can lead to local changes in protein hydration, and consequently, can affect considerably protein stability and folding process.  (+info)

Expression and mutational analysis of amino acid residues involved in catalytic activity in a ribonuclease MC1 from the seeds of bitter gourd. (6/164)

The ribonuclease MC1 (RNase MC1) from seeds of bitter gourd (Momordica charantia) consists of 190 amino acids and belongs to the RNase T2 family, including fungal RNases typified by RNase Rh from Rhizopus niveus. We expressed RNase MC1 in Escherichia coli cells and made use of site-directed mutagenesis to identify essential amino acid residues for catalytic activity. Mutations of His34 and His88 to Ala completely abolished the enzymatic activity, and considerable decreases in the enzymatic activity were observed in cases of mutations of His83, Glu84, and Lys87, when yeast RNA was used as a substrate. Kinetic parameters for the enzymatic activity of the mutants of His83, Glu84, and Lys87 were analyzed using a dinucleoside monophosphate CpU. Km values for the mutants were approximately like that for wild-type, while k(cat) values were decreased by about 6 to 25-fold. These results suggest that His34, His83, Glu84, Lys87, and His88 in RNase MC1 may be involved in the catalytic function. These observation suggests that RNase MC1 from a plant catalyzes RNA degradation in a similar manner to that of fungal RNases.  (+info)

Purification and characterization of a novel pumpkin short-chain acyl-coenzyme A oxidase with structural similarity to acyl-coenzyme A dehydrogenases. (7/164)

A novel pumpkin (Cucurbita pepo) short-chain acyl-coenzyme A (CoA) oxidase (ACOX) was purified to homogeneity by hydrophobic-interaction, hydroxyapatite, affinity, and anion-exchange chromatography. The purified enzyme is a tetrameric protein, consisting of apparently identical 47-kD subunits. The protein structure of this oxidase differs from other plant and mammalian ACOXs, but is similar to the protein structure of mammalian mitochondrial acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (ACDH) and the recently identified plant mitochondrial ACDH. Subcellular organelle separation by sucrose density gradient centrifugation revealed that the enzyme is localized in glyoxysomes, whereas no immunoreactive bands of similar molecular weight were detected in mitochondrial fractions. The enzyme selectively catalyzes the oxidation of CoA esters of fatty acids with 4 to 10 carbon atoms, and exhibits the highest activity on C-6 fatty acids. Apparently, the enzyme has no activity on CoA esters of branched-chain or dicarboxylic fatty acids. The enzyme is slightly inhibited by high concentrations of substrate and it is not inhibited by Triton X-100 at concentrations up to 0.5% (v/v). The characteristics of this novel ACOX enzyme are discussed in relation to other ACOXs and ACDHs.  (+info)

Identification of phloem involved in assimilate loading in leaves by the activity of the galactinol synthase promoter. (8/164)

The definition of "minor" veins in leaves is arbitrary and of uncertain biological significance. Generally, the term refers to the smallest vein classes in the leaf, believed to function in phloem loading. We found that a galactinol synthase promoter, cloned from melon (Cucumis melo), directs expression of the gusA gene to the smallest veins of mature Arabidopsis and cultivated tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum) leaves. This expression pattern is consistent with the role of galactinol synthase in sugar synthesis and phloem loading in cucurbits. The expression pattern in tobacco is especially noteworthy since galactinol is not synthesized in the leaves of this plant. Also, we unexpectedly found that expression in tobacco is limited to two of three companion cells in class-V veins, which are the most extensive in the leaf. Thus, the "minor" vein system is defined and regulated at the genetic level, and there is heterogeneity of response to this system by different companion cells of the same vein.  (+info)

Abstract : The objective of the study was to assess the growth contributing characters of biofield treated bottle gourd(Lagenaria siceraria) and okra (Abelmoschus esculentus) seeds. The seeds of both crops were divided into two groups, one waskept aside and denoted as untreated, while the other group was subjected biofield energy treatment. The variabilities in growthcontributing parameters were studied and compared with their control. Further the level of glutathione (GSH) in okra leaves,along with DNA fingerprinting in bottle gourd were analyzed using RAPD method. After germination, the plants of bottle gourdwere reported to be strong and erect with better canopy as compared with the control. The vegetative growth of okra plants afterbiofield energy treatment was found to be stout with small canopy, strong steam, and more fruits per nodes, that contributed highyield as compared with the control. However, endogenous level of GSH in the leaves of okra was increased by 47.65% ascompared to the ...
Luo Han Kuo fruit (Siraitia grosvenori Swingle), a fruit native to China, has been used as a natural sweetening agent for centuries and has been reported to be beneficial for diabetic population. However, limited research has been conducted to elucidate the relationship between the sweetening action and biological parameters that may be related to potential health benefits of LHK fruit (Luo Han Kuo fruit). The present study examined the effect of LHK fruit and its chemical components on insulin secretion using an in vitro cell model system. Mogroside V is the most abundant and the sweetest chemical component among the mogrosides in LHK fruit. The experimental data demonstrated that the crude LHK extract stimulated the secretion of insulin in pancreatic beta cells; furthermore, pure mogroside V isolated from LHK fruit also exhibited a significant activity in stimulating insulin secretion by the beta cells, which could partially be responsible for the insulin secretion activity of LHK fruit and fruit
Lagenaria contains six species, all of which are indigenous to tropical Africa. The best-known species, the bottle gourd, Lagennaria siceraria, has been domesticated by humans, and has spread beyond Africa. The other species are not cultivated. The gourds of the various species may be harvested young and used as a vegetable. More commonly, the gourds are harvested mature, then dried, and used in making utensils (including musical instruments and containers). Gourds of Lagennaria siceraria have been used to store water and other liquids since ancient times. The generic name lagenaria comes from classical Latin lagena meaning bottle or flask, plus Latin suffix -aria ...

... cultivated crops worldwide. have resulted from the absence of recent whole-genome duplication event in these two Cucurbitaceae crops. Numerous stress- and hormone-responsive L., negatively or positively respond to salt, drought, and cold stresses (Tran et al., 2007, 2010; Wohlbach et al., 2008; Pham et al., 2012; Jeon and Kim, 2013; Kumar et al., 2013). genes are markedly downregulated by heat stress (Miyata et al., 1998). All type-A ARRs participate in the osmosis-related stresses by interacting with abscisic acid (ABA) with positive or unfavorable response. Many RR genes are also induced by drought, high salinity, and low heat (Wohlbach et al., 2008; Jeon et al., 2010). Additionally, a set of TCS elements in other crops have been proved to participate in abiotic stresses. Rice silencing seedlings oppositely respond to salt treatment and drought stress (Sun et al., 2014). OsHK3 is usually involved in ...
Coccinia palmata (Cogn.) and Lagenaha sphaerica (Sond.) Naud. are indigenous Cucurbitaceae species widely distributed in pantropical to tropical regions of Southern Africa. They are widely used for food and medicinal purposes, in nature these species exist as diploids, with their basic haploid (n) chromosome numbers being 12 and 11 for C. palmata and L sphaerica respectively. However, in higher plants nuclear DNA endoreduplication often occurs during their growth and differentiation which causes polysomaty in their tissues. For both C. palmata and L sphaerica, the optimum germination conditions were 25°C under light. Growth was either in the nursery (in pots/bags) or in the field (with and without bags). Colchicine treatment of seeds before and after incubation for germination was used to induce polyploidy in both of these Cucurbitaceae species. The effectiveness of colchicine in inducing polyploidy (genetic improvement) in the roots and shoots of both species was established. In both species ...
The Cucurbitales is primarily a tropical order of pants[1] and contains fewer than a dozen species known to grow in the wild in New York. All of these species are in the family Cucurbitaceae, and only two of them are considered native to New York State. The remainder have been known to escape from cultivation in the state, but none of them appear to persist for long.[2]. ...
This is what I get for applying all this fancy book learnin to real life. Now I have to address a food that Ive been dreading…Those foods found in the Cucurbitaceae family. This would include those items which fall into the "gourd" family. I, as a rule of thumb, have not made a habit out of eating anything which could also be used as a musical instrument.. This, undoubtedly, makes me a bad person.. Sure, sure, there are cucumbers I can look forward to, even if they are now at the tail end of their growing season. I have nothing against the majority of melons either, although the name "muskmelon" has been known to make me all wobbly. Luckily for me, muskmelons (also known as cantaloupe) werent domesticated until roughly 2400 BC. Since Im still roughly at 5000 BC in my exploration of various food stuffs, theres still plenty to explore between then and now.. No, its the squash that has me all atwitter. Theres the summer squashes, with its zucchini. I can handle that. I suppose its the ...
Cucurbitaceae are easily recognised. They are vines or lianes with often rather roughly hairy exstipulate leaves that have palmate venation. In the leaf axil there is a usually lateral and branched tendril, a vegetative bud, a flower, or a yet more complex organisation. The plants are dioecious or monoecious, and the flowers have a hypanthium or joint calyx/corolla tube, an often complex androecium made up of twisted, monothecal anthers borne in the centre of the flower, and an inferior ovary with parietal placentation. The corolla is often more or less yellow, sometimes red. The seeds are more or less flattened. Evolution: Divergence & Distribution. For numerous dates within the family, see Schaefer et al. (2009).. The current world-wide range of Cucurbitaceae is in large part the result of extensive dispersal, Madagascar being colonized an estimated thirteen times and Australia twelve times - and the latter currently has only twelve genera and thirty species of Cucurbitaceae (Schaefer et al. ...

Recent work on luohanguo includes investigation of the antioxidant activity of the mogrosides (13) and their potential use as cancer prevention compounds (14). This suggested effect is based on the understanding that antioxidants can produce significant reversal or suppression of the early stage of cancer development, which has been an area of particular interest for tea drinking (15). Further, luohanguo and its sweetening component are often mentioned in relation to diabetes and obesity, because it can substitute for caloric sugars normally consumed in the diet.. ...

Butternut Squash: With a rich history on all five continents, butternut squashs true origin remains a bit of a mystery, although its versatility is appreciated by many cultures and cuisines to this day.. As a staple ingredient for the Incas in South and Central America, it was commonly found in authentic Peruvian dishes to add body, vitamins and sustenance to meals before migrating to Asia, Africa and Europe. High in fibre and a rich source of vitamins (A, C & E), magnesium and potassium, it is a brilliant addition to stews, risottos, soups and curries.. From the Cucurbitaceae family along with pumpkin and courgette, butternut squash is a winter vegetable harvested after developing a tough exterior. However, as one of the easiest squashes to peel and prepare, butternut has become a staple in many British kitchens and allotments.. Seasonal period: September to January.

Pumpkins belong to the Cucurbitaceae family and got its name from the Greek word "pepon" or "large melon." The humble fruit originated in Central America and has become an integral part of the modern American culture. Recent research proves that the pumpkin, in all its forms, flesh, seeds, and oil has the power to alter the disease processes in the body.. With just 26 calories per 100 gram, the pumpkin is low in calories, has no saturated fat or cholesterol and is rich in dietary fiber. Dieticians recommend the pumpkin for those in a weight loss diet and for those trying to control their cholesterol intake. The high fiber content is effective in treating gastrointestinal disorders like constipation and indigestion. The fiber helps in lowering LDL cholesterol levels in the blood and also regulates the blood sugar levels, which, in turn, helps those with diabetes.. The bright orange of the pumpkin is due to the high level of carotenoids present in them. Carotenoids are scavengers of free radicals ...
  This study was aimed at determining the effects of the ethanolic extract of the whole fruit of Lagenaria breviflora Robert on male fertility by evaluating some andrological parameters of the Wistar rat such as morphology of spermatozoa, sperm count, motility, liveability and volume of the semen. Histopathology of the testis was carried out. 20 adult male Wistar rats were randomly divided into 5 groups. The rats in group A (Control) were administered with 0.9% physiological saline, while rats in groups B, C, D, and E were administered with the extract of 1000, 2000, 4000 and 8000 mg per Kg body weight, respectively, once daily for 14 days. The extract caused morphological alterations of sperm cells in this study, predominantly of secondary abnormality. These include bent mid-piece, curved mid-piece, bent tail, curved tail, normal tail without head, normal head without tail, looped tail, and coiled tail, which are indications of interference with maturation stage of spermatogenesis
It might not be winter, but its winter squash season in Oklahoma. Squash are part of the Cucurbitaceae family that includes everything from cucumbers and cantaloupes to gourds and pumpkins. Winter squash are distinguishable from summer squash varieties-such as zucchini and patty pan-by their hard rinds, which make them storable in a cool, dry location well into the winter months (hence the name). Their slightly sweet flesh works in both sweet and savory preparations, and - with the exception of spaghetti squash- winter squash varieties can be used interchangeably in most recipes.. ...

Christophene (Sechium edule) was osmotically dehydrated to produce a candied product. The christophene was blanched in hot water for 5 min followed by steam blanching for 5 min and then subjected to osmotic dehydration in various sugar solutions prepared to 30°Brix and increased daily for 3 days to 45°Brix, 60°Brix and 70°Brix. Final drying was at 68°C for 4 hours. Preliminary results indicated that products from 100% sucrose had a dull appearance with a coat of sugar while products in 100% glucose/fructose were sticky. In further work, peeled and un-peeled christophene cubes were soaked in 75% sucrose with 25% glucose/ fructose and un-peeled christophene to 50% sucrose with 50% glucose/fructose and 25% sucrose with 75% glucose/fructose. A product from 75% sucrose with 25% glucose/fructose had the best overall acceptability (liked slightly to moderately), lowest moisture content (10.5-15.2%) and had low microbial count (| 10 cfu g -1) after 21 days of storage at 19±1°C.

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 ...
Around hundred different types of vegetable are available in Bangladesh for human consumption that are the important nutritional source of dietary fibers and antioxidants. Amaranthus gangeticus, Amaranthus viridis, Basella alba, Brassica campestris, Chenopodium album, Centella asiatica, Coriandrum sativum, Enhydra fluctuans, Ipomoea aquatica, Lagenaria siceraria, Pisum sativum and Spinacia oleracea are the twelve common leafy vegetables of Bangladesh. In this study, their ethanol extracts were studied to determine total flavonoids (TF) content and reducing power (RP) to evaluate the antioxidant activity of the extracts. This study reveals the high antioxidant contents in the leaves of the vegetables. I. aquatica was found to highest in TF and RP followed by P. sativum and L. siceraria. The lowest TF was found in S. oleracea which also showed the lowest RP. A significant correlation between flavonoids content and reducing power (r2 = 0.87) was found. The high antioxidant contents in the vegetables may
Impatiens necrotic spot virus (INSV) is quickly becoming one of the most important viral pathogens of floral crops in Tennessee and the United States. INSV has historically been a problem in Mexico, and the western and southwestern parts of the U.S. and Hawaii. During the mid-1980s, INSV has spread rapidly in the Gulf Coast states from Texas to Florida, and north into Tennessee and Kentucky. Although the reasons as to why the virus spread so rapidly are unknown, it may be related to the migration of the thrips from infested regions into new areas and movement of infected plant material between greenhouses.
Cucurbita pepo belongs to the Cucurbitaceae family. The Zucchini types rank among the highest-valued vegetables worldwide, and other C. pepo and related Cucurbita spp., are food staples and rich sources of fat and vitamins. A broad range of genomic tools are today available for other cucurbits that have become models for the study of different metabolic processes. However, these tools are still lacking in the Cucurbita genus, thus limiting gene discovery and the process of breeding. We report the generation of a total of 512,751 C. pepo EST sequences, using 454 GS FLX Titanium technology. ESTs were obtained from normalized cDNA libraries (root, leaves, and flower tissue) prepared using two varieties with contrasting phenotypes for plant, flowering and fruit traits, representing the two C. pepo subspecies: subsp. pepo cv. Zucchini and subsp. ovifera cv Scallop. De novo assembling was performed to generate a collection of 49,610 Cucurbita unigenes (average length of 626 bp) that represent the first

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 ...

The Santa Claus melon, sometimes known as Christmas melon or piel de sapo, is a variety of melon of (family Cucurbitaceae, Cucumis melo, Inodorus group) originating in Spain that grows to about a foot in length and is oval in shape. It has a thick, green-striped outer rind and pale green to white inner flesh with a mild melon flavour and sweetness close to honeydew melons. It has a blotched green peel after which it is named in Spanish (piel de sapo translates as "toad skin"). A closely related melon with the same shape, but with yellow peel is known as Amarillo or canary melon. The attractive green and gold-to-bright yellow-striped Santa Claus melon somewhat resembles a small watermelon. Inside is a mellow and mildly flavoured, pale-greenish flesh very similar to that of a honeydew. The ripest Santa Claus melon will have soft blossom ends that yield to gentle pressure and a vibrant yellow hue. Because of its thick skin, this melon does not release a tell-tale aroma when ripe. This melon was ...
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"..

The snake gourd, also known as serpent gourd, is a tropical plant, with the scientific name Trichosanthes cucumerina. It naturally grows in India and southeast Asia and will grow in warmer locations in the U.S. Trichosanthes has a five-petaled white flower with long lacy edges. The long thin gourd can grow from 2 to 6 feet long. Trained on trellises, the gourds hang down and are likely to grow straight; grown on the ground, they are more likely to curl and make interesting shapes. Blanks can be bought online. Like other gourds, they can be dried and painted or etched. Unlike most gourds, snake gourds are edible. They can be sectioned and stuffed like peppers or chopped like spinach and zucchini. Young gourds are best for eating, as older ones taste bitter. Snake gourd extract is used medicinally.. ...

Cucurbitaceae species. Most types of melon can be used in herbal skin care because of the cleansing, firming and toning effects they have on the skin. Mashed or pureed melon pulp can be mixed with oatmeal or cornmeal to make facial masks or poultices.. For oily skin, use watermelon for its cleansing and refreshing properties. Honeydew melon is better for normal to dry skins. Melon can be liquidised with milk and/or flower waters to create all-natural skin cleansing milks and toners. Use ½ slice of melon to 300ml milk or flower water. Liquidise in a blender with the milk or flower water, sieve then freeze in an ice cube tray. Keep the iced melon cubes in the freezer and thaw and use them one at a time. Use small slices of melon as a compress for sore or tired eyes. Honeydew melon and rosewater made into a skin toner as above is also cooling and refreshing for eyes - simply apply the toner with a cotton pad to the eye area.. Index. ...
There are five families of cucurbits , The 5 families do not cross pollinate, but members within the sub family will. So it is necessary to recognize what family the squash belongs to and then only plant one of members. Separate different squash varieties in the same species by at least 1/2 mile to ensure purity. (Some crossing between C. mixta and C. moschata has been reported recently. If you plan to save the seed, pick one flower on the plant and hand pollinate. Make sure you cover it till it starts to develop fruit. Then mark it so you know this is the one to save for seed. The cucurbits are a family of vining plants that includes cucumbers, squash, pumpkins, watermelon, luffa, melons.and gourds All edible plants from this family are actually fruits, deriving from the ovary of a pollinated flower, even though we might call them a vegetable.Many of the plants contain separate male and female flow Cucurbita (Latin for gourd)] is a genus of herbaceous vine in the gourd family, Cucurbitaceae, ...

Cantaloupe is a type of melon characterized by a webbed surface. The scientific name of this fruit is Cucumis melo, also known as muskmelon. It belongs to the Cucurbitaceae family, which includes melons, squash, and cucumbers. Cantaloupes are named for the papal gardens of Cantalupo, Italy where some historians report this species of melon was first grown. Cantaloupes have a sweet fragrance when they are ripe and the blossom end of the fruit should yield to moderate pressure.
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: Melon (Cucumis melo) is a horticultural specie of significant nutritional value, which belongs to the Cucurbitaceae family, whose economic importance is second only to the Solanaceae. Its small genome of approx. 450 Mb coupled to the high genetic diversity has prompted the development of genetic tools in the last decade. However, the unprecedented existence of a transcriptomic approaches in melon, highlight the importance of designing new tools for high-throughput analysis of gene expression. Results: We report the construction of an oligo-based microarray using a total of 17,510 unigenes derived from 33,418 high-quality melon ESTs. This chip is particularly enriched with genes that are expressed in fruit and during interaction with pathogens. Hybridizations for three independent experiments allowed the characterization of global gene expression profiles during fruit ripening, as well as in response to viral and fungal infections in plant cotyledons and roots, respectively. ...

Its decorative gourd season, ladies and gentlemen. If you are anything like me then you should be reveling in the tastes, smells, and overall pleasing aesthetics of the fruit of the family Cucurbitaceae. If so, then you must pay your respects to a hard working bee that is responsible for the sexual efforts of these vining plants. Im not talking about the honeybee, no no. I am talking about the squash bees. If were being technical, the squash bees are comprised of two genera, Peponapis and Xenoglossa. They are not the hive forming bees we generally think of. Instead, these bees are solitary in nature. After mating (which usually occurs inside squash flowers) the females will dig a tunnel into the ground. Inside that tunnel she places balls of squash pollen upon which she will lay an egg. The larvae consume the protein-rich pollen as they develop. The story of squash bees and Cucurbitaceae is a North American story. Long before squash was domesticated, these bees were busy pollinating their ...

This is what I get for applying all this fancy book learnin to real life. Now I have to address a food that Ive been dreading…Those foods found in the Cucurbitaceae family. This would include those items which fall into the "gourd" family. I, as a rule of thumb, have not made a habit out of eating anything which could also be used as a musical instrument.. This, undoubtedly, makes me a bad person.. Sure, sure, there are cucumbers I can look forward to, even if they are now at the tail end of their growing season. I have nothing against the majority of melons either, although the name "muskmelon" has been known to make me all wobbly. Luckily for me, muskmelons (also known as cantaloupe) werent domesticated until roughly 2400 BC. Since Im still roughly at 5000 BC in my exploration of various food stuffs, theres still plenty to explore between then and now.. No, its the squash that has me all atwitter.

Pumpkin is a gourd-like squash of the genus Cucurbita and the family Cucurbitaceae (which also includes gourds). The Pumpkin is thought to have originated in Central America, possibly Mexico, but is now grown widely in temperate and tropical zones. It is an annual climber, typically with a large, round, ribbed, edible orange fruit. But Pumpkin comes in several other forms such as the finer-textured, straw-coloured Cheese Pumpkin ...

Pumpkins, squash, and gourds are all part of a family of plants known as Cucurbitaceae. These warmth-loving plants often grow to huge lengths, with vines growing 20 feet or more throughout the season. While pumpkins are often seen as a fall vegetable, it can take from 90-120 days until the plants produced their final crops, so planting often takes place in the late spring and early summer throughout New England. To produce good pumpkins the plants also require well drained and fertile soil, so in addition to making sure you have enough space, pumpkin growers need to be sure to start with soil enriched with compost and other nutrients ...
A pumpkin is a cultivar of a squash plant, most commonly of Cucurbita pepo, that is round, with smooth, slightly ribbed skin, and deep yellow to orange coloration. The thick shell contains the seeds and pulp. Some exceptionally large cultivars of squash with similar appearance have also been derived from Cucurbita maxima. Specific cultivars of winter squash derived from other species, including C. argyrosperma, and C. moschata, are also sometimes called "pumpkin".. Pumpkins are a warm-weather crop that is usually planted in early July. The specific conditions necessary for growing pumpkins require that soil temperatures three inches (7.6 cm) deep are at least 60 °F (15.5 °C) and soil that holds water well. Pumpkin crops may suffer if there is a lack of water or because of cold temperatures (in this case, below 65 °F (18.3 °C); frost can be detrimental), and sandy soil with poor water retention or poorly drained soils that become waterlogged after heavy rain. Pumpkins are, however, rather ...

Not so, dissents Donna Fraser-Leary of Charlotte, Vt. You do this versatile pumpkin an injusticeWhile their flavor is somewhat milder than a winter squash and the texture somewhat fibrousMy daughter and I like it so much, we steam the pumpkin and eat it still in the shell. I use it in all my favorite recipes that call for squash or pumpkin. Rosalind Creasy says chefs in France use it as a base in their vegetable stock and bake garlic, onions and leeks in the pumpkin to scoop right from the shell into a Swiss cheese leek soup. While folks may disagree about its eating quality (I fall closer to Goldmans camp), no one can gainsay its spectacular beauty. This French heirloom turns the pumpkin patch into a glowing blaze with its decorative deeply ridged burnt-orange to red 730 lb flattened fruits. Because of its thin skin, not a great keeper.

Tomato leaf curl New Delhi virus (ToLCNDV) is a bipartite whitefly transmitted begomovirus, responsible since 2013 of severe damages in cucurbit crops in Southeastern Spain. Zucchini (Cucurbita pepo) is the most affected species, but melon (Cucumis melo) and cucumber (Cucumis sativus) are also highly damaged by the infection. The virus has spread across Mediterranean basin and European countries, and integrated control measures are not being enough to reduce economic losses. The identification of resistance genes is required to develop resistant cultivars. In this assay, we studied the inheritance of the resistance to ToLCNDV previously identified in two Cucurbita moschata accessions. We generated segregating populations crossing both resistant pumpkins, an American improved cultivar Large Cheese (PI 604506) and an Indian landrace (PI 381814), with a susceptible C. moschata genotype (PI 419083). The analysis of symptoms and viral titers of all populations established the same monogenic recessive genetic
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 ...
Escalating trends of obesity and associated type 2 diabetes (T2D) has prompted an increase in the use of alternative and complementary functional foods. Momordica charantia or bitter melon (BM) that is traditionally used to treat diabetes and complications has been demonstrated to alleviate hyperglycemia as well as reduce adiposity in rodents. However, its effects on human adipocytes remain unknown. The objective of our study was to investigate the effects of BM juice (BMJ) on lipid accumulation and adipocyte differentiation transcription factors in primary human differentiating preadipocytes and adipocytes. Commercially available cryopreserved primary human preadipocytes were treated with and without BMJ during and after differentiation. Cytotoxicity, lipid accumulation, and adipogenic genes mRNA expression was measured by commercial enzymatic assay kits and semi-quantitative RT-PCR (RT-PCR). Preadipocytes treated with varying concentrations of BMJ during differentiation demonstrated significant
Actinorhizal nodules are structurally different from legume nodules and show a greater similarity to lateral roots. Because of the important role of auxins in lateral root and nodule formation, auxin profiles were examined in roots and nodules of the actinorhizal species Datisca glomerata and the model legume Medicago truncatula. The auxin response in roots and nodules of both species was analyzed in transgenic root systems expressing a beta-glucuronidase gene under control of the synthetic auxin-responsive promoter DR5. The effects of two different auxin on root development were compared for both species. The auxin present in nodules at the highest levels was phenylacetic acid (PAA). No differences were found between the concentrations of active auxins of roots vs. nodules, while levels of the auxin conjugate indole-3-acetic acid-alanine were increased in nodules compared to roots of both species. Because auxins typically act in concert with cytokinins, cytokinins were also quantified. ...
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 ...
