Prooxidant activity of resveratrol in the presence of copper ions: mutagenicity in plasmid DNA.

Abstract

Resveratrol, a polyphenolic compound of plant origin, has been of much interest to researchers because of its anticancer and cardiovascular properties. Although antioxidant action of this compound is believed responsible for its reported properties, it has also been shown to exhibit prooxidant properties, especially in the presence of copper ions. Here we… (More)
