The Cucumis melo L. inodorus honeydew melon variant is one of the most consumed melons in the USA, and has important commercial and nutritional value. There is a need for improvement of several genetic traits in the US honeydew melon, such as nutrition, drought tolerance, and disease resistance. We investigated the existing regeneration media and optimized(More)
Fifteen patients (17 feet) with symptoms suggestive of plantar interdigital neuroma underwent magnetic resonance (MR) imaging at 1.5 T with a solenoid forefoot coil with an 8-cm field of view. Surgery was subsequently performed on six feet. Fifteen interdigital masses were identified with MR imaging. Five of these, in feet that underwent surgery, were(More)
A reliable Agrobacterium-mediated transformation and shoot regeneration protocol was developed for breeding lines of commercially important western-shipper cantaloupe and honeydew melons, ‘F39’ and ‘150’, respectively. Different media were tested to select a shoot regeneration system for each of three elite breeding lines ‘F39’, ‘141’ and ‘TMS’. Murashige &(More)
A case of dorsal dislocation of the trapezoid associated with dorsal subluxation of the carpometacarpal joints of the index and long fingers is described. The initial trapezoid subluxation was overlooked and it progressed quickly to a complete dislocation. Open reduction and capsular repair without internal fixation was followed by early recurrent trapezoid(More)
Using a previously reported optimized Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated transformation protocol, a watermelon phytoene synthase-C (PSY-C) gene was introduced into the elite honeydew breeding line ‘150’. Putative transformants were selected on kanamycin-containing medium (from 150 to 50 mg·l−1) and presence of the transgene was confirmed using polymerase(More)
