In current study, an efficient and stable Agrobacterium-mediated genetic transformation approach using cotyledonary node explants in cucumber with CsEXP10 gene has been developed, which can be successfully used for the introduction and functional analysis of desired genes.

During cryopreservation, the samples survival will depend on the glassy state of explants, that is, the direct transition of water from liquid to an amorphous or glassy solid (Engelmann, 2011).
In study B, we evaluated for how long we can maintain matrix stability of osteochondral explants during long-term culture.
Different explants were used to initiate callus culture such as discs of seedling stem, cotyledonary leaves and root.
All the cultural operations including disinfection, surface sterilization of explants and subsequent sub-culturing were carried out in a laminar-air flow bench provided with an ultraviolet lamp and fluorescent tube.
Petiole and leaf blade explants obtained from the field were surface sterilized using 5 % (v/v) Clorox[R] for 5 min before the explants were rinsed using distilled-water for another 5 min.
Culture vessels containing explants were incubated in growth room at 26 C 1 C.
