Optimization of polyphenol extraction from grape skin, seed, and pulp was performed on Vitis vinifera L. cv. Pinot Noir, by response surface methodology using a Doehlert design. An acidified mixture of acetone/water/methanol was the best solvent for simultaneous extraction of major polyphenol groups from all berry parts, while optimum extraction times and(More)
Proanthocyanidins (PAs), or condensed tannins, are flavonoid polymers, widespread throughout the plant kingdom, which provide protection against herbivores while conferring organoleptic and nutritive values to plant-derived foods, such as wine. However, the genetic basis of qualitative and quantitative PA composition variation is still poorly understood. To(More)
Vitamin E is a scavenger molecule trapping free radicals in biological membranes. However, it has also been shown to elicit the formation of reactive oxygen species and apoptosis in cancer cells. In this study, we tested the ability of alpha-tocopherol, tocopherol acetate, tocopherol phosphate and tocopherol succinate (TS) to modulate gap junctional(More)
