Resveratrol (trans-3,4',5-trihydroxystilbene) is produced by grapes (Vitis spp.) in response to microbial attack by the fungal grapevine pathogen Botrytis cinerea. Several reports indicate that pathogenic B.cinerea strains are capable of biotransforming resveratrol into an assortment of unidentified oxidized metabolites as a means of reducing the antifungal effects of resveratrol and facilitating Botrytis invasion into host-plant tissues. Studies utilizing growing incubations of Botrytis… CONTINUE READING
