Microbial transformation of resveratrol (1), trans-3,4', 5-trihydroxystilbene, was studied. Preparative scale biotransformation of 1 with whole-cell suspensions of Bacillus cereus UI 1477 resulted in the production of metabolite 2 which was identical in all respects to an authentic sample of piceid, resveratrol 3-O-beta-D-glucoside.
