SUMMARYThe relationship between the base number seven and twelve, i.e., which is the prime number from which the other has been derived, has been discussed. The chromatin lenght in various taxa of Cucumis and the categories of chromosomes in each have been utilised critically in discussing the primitive and advanced nature of various species. The trend indicates twelve as the primitive base number from which seven has been derived. C. callosus (x = 7) appears to be primitive on these… Expand
Cytogenetical treatise of Indian representative species of Cucumis. A karyotypic approach
TLDR
Investigation of karyomorphological studies in nine species and five varieties of the genus Cucumis representing Indian gene pool reveal the occurrence of two somatic chromosome numbers 2n = 14, 24 in the genus. Expand
Cytogenetic Investigation in Cucumis L. I. Meiotic analysis in twenty four Cucumis species
TLDR
During analysis of natural polyploids, two species namely, C. pustulatus and C. membranifolius were found to be allopolyploid on account of regular formation of 24 bivalents, which suggested the dominant role of polyploidy in species differentiation of the genus Cucumis. Expand
A reevaluation of karyotype in cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.)
TLDR
A karyotype analysis was conducted on the mitotic chromosomes of cucumber using improved chromosome preparation and C-banding techniques, leading to a precise identification of each pair of chromosomes. Expand
Evaluation of meiosis in cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) monohaploids
TLDR
It is concluded that very little chromosome homology and no evidence of duplication is to be found within the haploid set of cucumber chromosomes and that the basic chromosome number is seven. Expand
Meiotic analyses ofCucumis hybrids and an evolutionary evaluation of the genusCucumis (Cucurbitaceae)
TLDR
Meiosis in seven interspecificCucumis hybrids has been analysed and the phylogenetic advance is interpreted with concepts of the quantum model of evolution. Expand
Cytopalynological studies in Zanonia indica (Cucurbitaceae), a monotypic genus
TLDR
This paper presents first cytogenetical analysis of a monotypic genus, Zanonia indica (Cucurbitaceae), and finds that male meiosis was normal and revealed 15 bivalents at diakinesis. Expand
Karyotypic characterization of melon accessions
TLDR
To study karyotype diversity in eight melon accessions, the following methods were used: Giemsa 3% staining; application of CMA 3 /DAPI fluorochromes; and location of 45S and 5S rDNA sequences by fluorescence in situ hybridization. Expand
Comparative male meiotic studies in some Indian representative species of Cucumis L. (Cucurbitaceae)
TLDR
Male meiotic studies in eight Indian Cucumis species, including two newly included species, have been carried out, revealing the predominant occurrence of bivalents in the majority of the pollen mother cells (PMCs) of taxa having n = 7, suggesting a high degree of homology among the pairing chromosomes. Expand
Dynamics of sex expression and chromosome diversity in Cucurbitaceae: a story in the making
TLDR
The present discussion brings the genera in light, previously recognized under subfamily Nhandiroboideae, where the study of chromosome cytology and sex determination mechanisms can simplify the understanding of sex expression pathways and its phylogenetic impacts. Expand
New C-banding pattern for chromosome identification in cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.)
TLDR
A chromosome study of cucumber, C. sativus L., was performed using orcein and C-banding techniques, and six chromosomes seemed to have secondary constrictions in the diploid plants. Expand
