Resistant to ZYMV has been evaluated in F2 or BC1 cucumber families from a cross between susceptible ‘CS-PMR1’ and resistant ‘A192-18’ (Japanese type) cucumber inbred lines, we confirmed that ZYMV resistance was conferred by a single recessive locus (zymA192-18). The linkage map included 125 simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers that segregated into 7 chromosomes. The zymA192-18 locus was mapped on chromosome 6 at genetic distances from 2 closely linked SSR markers of 0.9 and 1.3 cM. For fine genetic mapping, we identified new molecular markers cosegregating with the zymA192-18 locus by using cucumber genomic and molecular marker resources in the F2:3 population. Screening of a mapping population of 2,429 F2 plants allowed us to narrow down the zymA192-18 locus to a <50 kb genomic region flanked by two SSR markers, which included six predicted genes. Semi-quantitative RT-PCR analysis revealed no differences in expression of these genes between A192-18 and CS-PMR1. Sequence analysis of the candidate genes’ coding regions revealed that the vacuolar protein sorting-associated protein 4-like (VPS4-like) gene had two SNPs between the parental lines. These results suggest that the gene encoding VPS4-like protein is a candidate for the zymA192-18 locus in cucumber.
