(n.) A creeping plant, and its fruit, of several species of the genus Cucumis, esp. Cucumis sativus, the unripe fruit of which is eaten either fresh or picked. Also, similar plants or fruits of several other genera. See below.
(1) The antibiotic is effective in control of cucumber root rot under hydroponic cultivation conditions.
(2) One of the precipitating MAbs recognized an epitope which appears to be common to AMV and cucumber mosaic virus.
(3) Soft organic material (meat, cucumber peels) was found in four patients, chicken bones in six, pins and needles in six, other nonorganic materials (toys, stone, broken thermometer) in six.
(4) The cucumber malate synthase (MS) gene, including 1856 bp of 5' non-transcribed sequence, has been transferred into Petunia (Mitchell) and Nicotiana plumbaginifolia plants using an Agrobacterium binary vector.
(5) Six amino acid sequences for trypsin inhibitors isolated from squash, summer squash, zucchini, and cucumber seeds were determined.
(6) To determine the structural requirements for cucumber mosaic virus (CMV) satellites to elicit lethal tomato necrosis, three satellite variants D, S and Y were used in the construction and cloning of chimeric cDNAs.
(7) As examples the conformational transitions of viroids, double-stranded RNA from reovirus, double-stranded satellite RNA from cucumber mosaic virus and repressor-operator complexes have been studied.
(8) Thylakoid membranes of cucumber, a typical chilling-sensitive plant, have been found to have a higher proportion of motionally restricted lipids and a different lipid selectivity for lipid-protein interaction, as compared with those of pea, a typical chilling-resistant plant.
(9) 4 Put the lettuce leaves in another bowl, cucumber sticks in another and bamboo shoots in another.
(10) Customers prefer Guatemalan vegetables because "they are bigger, cleaner and last longer" than local produce, says market seller Pedro Antonio Morales as he sprinkles the broccoli, cabbage, cucumber and tomatoes with water to combat the afternoon heat.
(11) Turkish Samsun NN plants were transformed with a modified and truncated replicase gene encoded by RNA-2 of cucumber mosaic virus strain Fny.
(12) Coelomic cells from the sea cucumber Caudina (Molpadia) arenicola contain four major globins, A, B, C and D. The hemoglobins from this organism show unusual ligand-linked dissociation properties.
(13) Control of the flowering habit simplifies the production of hybrid seed and offers the possibility of enhancing cucumber yields.
(14) Designations which can be used to describe distinct viroids within the four groups include (i) CEVd-g, a grapevine isolate of citrus exocortis viroid, (ii) GVd-c, a grapevine viroid recovered from cucumber, and AGVd, Australian grapevine viroid, (iii) GYSVd-1 and GYSVd-2, two viroids inducing yellow speckle disease and (iv) HSVd-g, a grapevine isolate of hop stunt viroid.
(15) The relationship of these 3 viruses to cucumber mosiac virus proved to be more distant.
(16) The in vitro translation products directed by cucumber necrosis virus (CNV) RNA were analysed in both rabbit reticulocyte lysate and wheatgerm extract cell-free translation systems.
(17) These metabolic differences are explained by the presence of strong biosynthetic interconnections between the divinyl and monovinyl monocarboxylic routes, prior to divinyl protochlorophyllide formation, in barley but not in cucumber.
(18) This similarity may be involved in one or more of the biological properties these two viruses share, such as the ability to infect cucumbers naturally and to be transmitted by the soil-inhabiting fungus Olpidium radicale.
(19) The sequence of lx-satRNA, a CMV-satRNA necrogenic for tomato that shows the unusual property of accumulating in cucumber and in squash to levels similar to those in tomato and in tobacco, was determined.
(20) Reduction process of cucumber ascorbate oxidase with L-ascorbate was investigated in detail through absorption and electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectra under anaerobic condition.
