- ... Shelf-life of fruit is one of the most important traits in melon breeding. Shelf-life of climacteric fruits is closely related with ethylene whose biosynthesis is controlled by ACC synthase and ACC oxidase genes. As the first step to develop selection markers for shelf-life in melon (Cucumis melo), microsatellite and cleaved amplified polymorphic sequence (CAPS) polymorphisms were analyzed in two ...
