Applications and Properties:
Cucumber Eye Refreshers: At the end of a trying day, pamper yourself with the cooling, soothing pads cleverly disguised as nature's remedy. Each is pre-moistened with pure cucumber juice, and other rejuvenating extracts including chamomile, aloe vera and green tea. As eyes cool, puffiness and dark circles are reduced. Refrigerate for added pleasure.
Nitrate reductase activity:experiment results suggest the participation of adenine nucleotides on the in vivo modulation of NR activity in cucumber roots. NR was activated in vivo by cellular acidification and inactivated by alkalinisation. The acid-induced activation of NR was greatly prevented by okadaic acid, a protein phosphatase inhibitor.

Though cucumbers were brought early from the Old World, grown in many a garden, and are mentioned in several eighteenth-century advertisements, nothing is found to be said about varieties until 1806, when M'Mahon, in his Gardener's Calendar, named eight, all from the Old World. Modern cucumbers gradually evolved from these and other European varieties without planned hybridization, or much selection, until 1872, when Tailby's hybrid was exhibited. After that, especially from 1880 to the present, much interest has been shown in breeding this vegetable. Most of the kinds now grown by gardeners and truckers have originated since 1900. Modern cucumbers are little like those listed by M'Mahon in 1806.
