Genetic control of fruit shape acts prior to anthesis in melon (Cucumis melo L.)
Most QTLs for fruit shape and ovary shape detected were found to co-segregate, thus demonstrating early control of fruit shape during ovary development, and suggests that control of Fruit shape by gene(s) active early in the ovary is a general feature in C. melo. Expand
A reference map of Cucumis melo based on two recombinant inbred line populations
Comparison of the maps enables one to conclude that AFLPs and IMAs of like molecular size, amplified with the same primer combination, correspond to the same genetic locus. Expand
Molecular and Genetic Characterization of a Non-Climacteric Phenotype in Melon Reveals Two Loci Conferring Altered Ethylene Response in Fruit1
The non-climacteric phenotype in fruit tissues is attributable to ethylene insensitivity conferred by the recessive allelic forms from PI 161375, and both characters are controlled by two independent loci, abscission layer(Al)-3 and Al-4. Expand
A Conserved Mutation in an Ethylene Biosynthesis Enzyme Leads to Andromonoecy in Melons
A causal single-nucleotide polymorphism associated with andromonoecy was identified, which suggests that the a allele has been under recent positive selection and may be linked to the evolution of this sexual system. Expand
Linkage groups in Cucumis melo L.
A transposon-induced epigenetic change leads to sex determination in melon
A model in which CmACS-7 and CmWIP1 interact to control the development of male, female and hermaphrodite flowers in melon is indicated. Expand
Polygenic Inheritance of Partial Resistance to Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. melonis Race 1.2 in Melon.
Results contribute to a better understanding of the polygenic inheritance of the partial resistance to F. oxysporum f. Expand
Variation in melon (Cucumis melo) landraces adapted to the humid tropics of southern India
The first comprehensive genetic characterization of melon landraces from the humid tropics of southern India showed that an important portion of the genetic variability found within this melon collection has not been used yet for the development of new cultivars, suggesting that adequate management of this important genetic resource is clearly a necessity.

An eIF4E allele confers resistance to an uncapped and non-polyadenylated RNA virus in melon.
It is suggested that translation initiation factors of the eIF4E family are universal determinants of plant susceptibility to RNA viruses. Expand
