Five plants of the family Cucurbitaceae with flavonoid patterns of pollens different from those of corresponding stigmas

Summary

Flavonoid patterns of pollens of 5 plants of the family Cucurbitaceae are different from those of the corresponding stigmas. The major flavonoid of pollens has been identified as kaempferol 3-O-rutinoside (1). Rutin (2) has been found in stigmas of 2 species. The other flavonoids of pollens and stigmas of these plants are flavonol 3-O-glycosides.
