Powdery mildew caused by Podosphaera xanthii is an important foliar disease in melon. To find molecular markers for marker-assisted selection, we constructed a genetic linkage map of melon based on a population of 93 recombinant inbred lines derived from crosses between highly resistant AR 5 and susceptible 'Earl's Favourite (Harukei 3)'. The map spans 877(More)
Powdery mildew limits cucumber production worldwide. Most resistant cucumber cultivars become susceptible to powdery mildew at low temperatures. Resistance within a wide temperature range is therefore desirable for cucumber production. We constructed a cucumber genetic linkage map based on a population of 111 recombinant inbred lines derived from a cross(More)
A population of F7 recombinant inbred lines (RILs) was made from a cross between susceptible ('Santou') and resistant (PI197088-1) lines of cucumber in order to study powdery mildew resistance loci. Susceptibility to powdery mildew in the F7 RIL individuals showed a continuous distribution from susceptible to resistant, suggesting that powdery mildew(More)
Downy mildew, caused by Pseudoperonospora cubensis (Berk. & Curt.) Rostov, is one of the most economically important foliar diseases in cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.). Cucumber line CS-PMR1, derived from self-pollination of USDA Plant Introduction 197088, has a high level of resistance to downy mildew and is considered to be promising breeding material. In(More)
Plant architecture plays an important role in the yield, product quality, and cultivation practices of many crops. Branching pattern is one of the most important components in the plant architecture of melon (Cucumis melo L.). ‘Melon Chukanbohon Nou 4 Go’ (Nou-4) has a short-lateral-branching trait derived from a weedy melon, LB-1. This trait is reported to(More)
Fifty-one melon (Cucumis melo) accessions that originated from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh were evaluated for resistance to Cucurbit chlorotic yellows virus (CCYV), a newly emerged species in the genus Crinivirus. CCYV was inoculated using sweet potato whitefly (Bemisia tabaci) biotype Q. Accessions, JP 138332, JP 216154, JP 216155, JP 216751 and JP(More)
A meso,meso-linked porphyrin dimer [(ZnP)(2)] as a light-harvesting chromophore has been incorporated into a photosynthetic multistep electron-transfer model for the first time, including ferrocene (Fc), as an electron donor and fullerene (C(60)) as an electron acceptor to construct the ferrocene-meso,meso-linked porphyrin dimer-fullerene system(More)
[60]Fullerene-linked quarter- and octithiophenes bearing a tripodal rigid anchor have been synthesized as components of highly efficient SAM-based photovoltaic cells. It has been demonstrated that the tripodal anchor plays an important role in preparing a well-organized SAM on a gold electrode, leading to marked enhancement of the photocurrent generation as(More)
[reaction: see text] Azophenol dyes having the permethylated cyclodextrin and/or crown moieties have been synthesized. Compound 1 provides critical information on discriminating 1-3 degrees amines with unique color changes. Addition of 1 degrees and 2 degrees amines to 1 shifts the absorbance maximum of 1 from 380 to approximately 580 and approximately 530(More)
