Metabolite profiling of grape: Flavonols and anthocyanins.
Flavonols are products of the flavonoid biosynthetic pathway, which also give rise to anthocyanins and condensed tannins in grapes. We investigated their presence in the berry skins of 91 grapeExpand

Ripening and genotype control stilbene accumulation in healthy grapes.
In grapes, stilbene synthesis occurs in the skin, and it is induced by biotic and abiotic stresses. To date, experimental evidence of a constitutive production of resveratrols in healthy grape isExpand

Expression of the Stilbene Synthase (StSy) Gene from Grapevine in Transgenic White Poplar Results in High Accumulation of the Antioxidant Resveratrol Glucosides
When present, stilbene synthase leads to the production of resveratrol compounds, which are major components of the phytoalexin response against fungal pathogens of the plant and are highly bioactiveExpand

Relationship of changes in rotundone content during grape ripening and winemaking to manipulation of the 'peppery' character of wine.
Biosynthesis of the sesquiterpene rotundone in Vespolina grapes during berry ripening was investigated over two consecutive seasons, revealing that the compound accumulates from veraison to harvestExpand

The stomach as a site for anthocyanins absorption from food 1
The ability of anthocyanins to permeate the gastric mucosa can be suggested as a possible explanation of the fast kinetics of plasma appearance of anthocyanins in rats and humans. This paper presentsExpand

Differences in the amount and structure of extractable skin and seed tannins amongst red grape varieties
Background and Aims: Red wine is a very rich source of flavanols, consisting of catechins and oligomeric and polymeric proanthocyanidins (PAs). The aim of this study was to investigate theExpand

Olfactory responses of Drosophila suzukii females to host plant volatiles
Drosophila suzukii Matsumura, an endemic pest in southeast Asia, has invaded Europe and the U.S.A. Unlike most of its closely related sibling species, the serrated ovipositor of D. suzukii permitsExpand
