The Genome Sequence of the North-European Cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) Unravels Evolutionary Adaptation Mechanisms in Plants
Comparative analysis of all the five genomes showed that, each species and/or cultivars has a specific profile of CRE content in promoters of orthologous genes, which could facilitate creation of new crops with improved growth and yield in divergent conditions. Expand
Transgene inheritance in plants.
The Nature of the recipient genome, nature of the transgene and the interactions between them seem to contribute to the non-Mendelian segregation of transgenes. Expand
Xyloglucan endotransglucosylase/hydrolase genes in cucumber (Cucumis sativus) - differential expression during somatic embryogenesis.
The localization of mRNA by in situ hybridization revealed that the Cs-XTH1 transcripts were largely accumulated in the presumptive cotyledon primordia of somatic embryos, suggesting the involvement of XTH-related genes in somatic embryo formation. Expand
The Shine-Dalgarno-like sequence is a negative regulatory element for translation of tobacco chloroplast rps2 mRNA: an additional mechanism for translational control in chloroplasts.
A possible mechanism for the negative regulation of rps2 mRNA translation is discussed, which is complementary to the 3' end of 16S rRNA and serves as a major determinant for correct translational initiation. Expand
The relationship between the regeneration system and genetic variability in the cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.)
Somaclonal variation in the Borszczagowski line of Cucumis sativus L. was determined for five regeneration systems: micropropagation (MP), direct leaf callus regeneration (DLR), leaf callusExpand
A tiling microarray for global analysis of chloroplast genome expression in cucumber and other plants
Comparative hybridization of chloroplast transcriptomes from cucumber, Arabidopsis, tomato and spinach showed that the PlasTi-microarray is highly versatile. Expand
Cytogenetic comparison among three cultivars of cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) by using post-heated DAPI band, 45S and 5S rDNA sites
The results indicated that the variation of chromosome structure among cucumbers cultivars occurred in the heterochromoatic region and suggested that the genetic variation in cucumber cultivars would be revealed by strict analysis and comparison for the position and size ofheterochromatic region.

A high-quality cucumber genome assembly enhances computational comparative genomics
A polymorphism prediction method with optimized precision parameters was developed, which allowed the effective detection of small nucleotide variants (SNVs) and could significantly improve bioinformatic pipelines for comparative genomics and thus has great practical potential in genomic metadata handling. Expand
The metabolic profiles of transgenic cucumber lines vary with different chromosomal locations of the transgene.
The metabolic profiles of five transgenic cucumber lines were compared taking into consideration their transgene integration sites, and some changes are common: a decrease in the levels of phenylalanine, aspartate, ethanolamine and pipecolate, and an increase in the level of benzoic acid. Expand
