A restriction map of the chromosome of the cyanobacterium Anabaena sp. strain PCC 7120 was generated by the determination of the order of restriction fragments of the infrequently cleaving restriction endonucleases AvrII, SalI, and PstI. These restriction fragments were resolved by the pulsed homogeneous orthogonal field gel electrophoresis system of(More)
The consumption of sweeteners, natural as well as synthetic sugars, is implicated in an array of modern-day health problems. Therefore, natural nonsugar sweeteners are of increasing interest. We identify here the biosynthetic pathway of the sweet triterpenoid glycoside mogroside V, which has a sweetening strength of 250 times that of sucrose and is derived(More)
Melon (Cucumis melo) fruits exhibit phenotypic diversity in several key quality determinants such as taste, color and aroma. Sucrose, carotenoids and volatiles are recognized as the key compounds shaping the above corresponding traits yet the full network of biochemical events underlying their synthesis have not been comprehensively described. To delineate(More)
