Abstract: LFY and LFY-like genes have been shown to control the initiation of floral meristems in higher plants. The homologous eDNA of LFY, CFL, were cloned from cucumber ( Cucumis sativus L. ). Southern blot analysis showed it was a single copy gene in the cucumber genome. Northern blot analysis showed that it expressed in the floral buds and young leaves. The possible role of CFL in the floral and vegetative development of cucumber plant was discussed.

Key words: LFY-like genes, Expression, Cucumis sativus
