Natural polyphenol resveratrol (trihydroxystilbene) is a partial agonist of human aryl hydrocarbon receptor AhR, thereby, displaying a plethora of biological effects. Biological activities of metoxylated and hydroxylated stilbenes were studied in the past. The aim of the current study was to describe the effects of 13 different hydroxy- and methoxystilbenes… CONTINUE READING
