A study was conducted to determine the presence of resveratrol, pterostilbene, and piceatannol in Vaccinium berries. Samples representing selections and cultivars of 10 species from Mississippi, North Carolina, Oregon, and Canada were analyzed by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry. Resveratrol was found in Vaccinium angustifolium (lowbush blueberry), Vaccinium arboretum (sparkleberry), Vaccinium ashei (rabbiteye blueberry), Vaccinium corymbosum (highbush blueberry), Vaccinium elliottii… Expand

Interventional Clinical Trial
Pterostilbene is one of several stilbenes found in certain berries, particularly blueberries, that have demonstrated pre-clinical benefit to cholesterol, blood pressure, and oxidative… Expand
ConditionsBlood Pressure, Hyperlipidemia, Oxidative Stress
InterventionDrug
Characterisation of stilbenes in California almonds (Prunus dulcis) by UHPLC-MS.
TLDR
Almonds contain the stilbene class of polyphenols in addition to the previously identified proanthocyanidin, hydrolysable tannin, flavonoid, and phenolic acid classes. Expand
Triterpenoids and Other Non-Polar Compounds in Leaves of Wild and Cultivated Vaccinium Species
TLDR
The results of principal component analysis (PCA) and hierarchical cluster analysis (HCA) showed that the diverse populations of each berry species analyzed differed from each other, most likely due to variations in the climatic and geographical conditions of their localities. Expand
Triterpenoid content of berries and leaves of bilberry Vaccinium myrtillus from Finland and Poland.
TLDR
The presented results revealed that the triterpenoid profile of bilberry varied considerably between different organs of the plant, regardless of the Plant origin, as well as between plant samples obtained from the two geographical locations. Expand
Production of stilbenoids from the callus of Arachis hypogaea: a novel source of the anticancer compound piceatannol.
TLDR
The piceatannol produced by calluses in all studies was much higher than the values reported in the literature, whereas the resveratrol produced was comparable to reported values. Expand
Comparison of the triterpenoid content of berries and leaves of lingonberry Vaccinium vitis-idaea from Finland and Poland.
TLDR
The most striking difference concerned the occurrence of fernenol and taraxasterol, which were found to be the major triterpenol in lingonberry leaves of Finnish and Polish origin, respectively. Expand
Postharvest accumulation of resveratrol and piceatannol in sugarcane with enhanced antioxidant activity.
TLDR
A postharvest method to produce stilbene-enriched sugarcane with increased levels of piceatannol and resveratrol with highest TPC and antioxidant activities was detailed. Expand
Comparative Study of the Leaf Volatiles of Arctostaphylos uva-ursi (L.) Spreng. and Vaccinium vitis-idaea L. (Ericaceae)
TLDR
Results of the chemical and statistical analyses pointed to a strong relation between the genera Vaccinium and Arctostaphylos. Expand
Piceatannol, a potent bioactive stilbene, as major phenolic component in Rhodomyrtus tomentosa.
TLDR
Findings highlight the potential of sim, an under-utilised plant species from South-East Asia, as a source of health-promoting fruits. Expand
Increase of antioxidant capacity of the lowbush blueberry (Vaccinium angustifolium) during fermentation by a novel bacterium from the fruit microflora
Members of the genus Vaccinium, such as blueberry and cranberry, are known to be excellent sources of antioxidant phenolic compounds, for example anthocyanins, flavonols and phenolic acids. The fruitExpand
Polyphenols and antioxidant activity of calafate ( Berberis microphylla ) fruits and other native berries from Southern Chile.
TLDR
Maqui and calafate show high antioxidant activity, which correlates highly with total polyphenol content and with anthocyanin concentration, which resembles that found in other berry fruits from southern Chile. Expand

Resveratrol in raw and baked blueberries and bilberries.
TLDR
Although blueberries and bilberries were found to contain resveratrol, the level of this chemoprotective compound in these fruits was <10% that reported for grapes, and cooking or heat processing of these berries will contribute to the degradation of resver atrol. Expand
Occurrence of resveratrol in edible peanuts.
TLDR
Analytical methods were adapted to isolate, identify, and quantify resveratrol in several cultivars of peanuts, indicating a range of 0.02-1.79 microg/g of peanut compared to 0.6-8.0microg/mL in red wines. Expand
Oxygen Radical Absorbing Capacity, Anthocyanin and Phenolic Content of Highbush Blueberries (Vaccinium corymbosum L.) during Ripening and Storage
The antioxidant properties of blueberries have been examined only in ripe fruit, although fruit of different maturities are used in processed food products. In this study, highbush blueberryExpand
Phenolic compounds and antioxidant capacity of Georgia-grown blueberries and blackberries.
Blueberries and blackberries grown at various locations in Georgia were collected and analyzed for flavonoids, total anthocyanins, total polyphenols, and Trolox-equivalent antioxidant capacityExpand
The occurrence of the stilbene piceatannol in grapes
Piceatannol (trans-3,3',4,5'-tetrahydroxy-stilbene) is a natural stilbene occurring in a number of plant species, and it has been shown to have beneficial effects on human health. The compound canExpand
The polyphenols of Nothofagus species—II.: The heartwood of Nothofagus fusca
Abstract From the heartwood of Nothofagus fusca were isolated taxifolin, catechin, aromadendrin, quercetin, kaempferol, naringenin, ellagic acid, gallic acid, resveratrol, 3,3′-di- O -methyl ellagicExpand
The molecular regulation of stilbene phytoalexin biosynthesis in Vitis vinifera during grape berry development
TLDR
It is demonstrated that inducible stilbene accumulation in ripening grape berries is highly regulated at the level of STS gene transcription, which may be a major factor contributing to the increased susceptibility of ripens grape berries to Botrytis cinerea infection. Expand
Potential Cancer-Chemopreventive Activities of Wine Stilbenoids and Flavans Extracted From Grape (Vitis vinifera) Cell Cultures
TLDR
Trans-astringin and trans-piceatannol may function as potential cancer-chemopreventive agents by a mechanism different from that of trans-resveratrol, a plant stilbenoid recently found in wine. Expand
Cancer chemopreventive and antioxidant activities of pterostilbene, a naturally occurring analogue of resveratrol.
TLDR
Pterostilbene was shown to be as effective as resveratrol in inhibiting electrolyte leakage caused by herbicide-induced oxidative damage, and both compounds had the same activity as alpha-tocopherol. Expand
Comparative study of radical scavenger and antioxidant properties of phenolic compounds from Vitis vinifera cell cultures using in vitro tests.
TLDR
Data indicate that phenolic compounds (stilbenes, catechins, anthocyanins) exhibit interesting properties which may account in part for the so-called "French paradox," i.e. that moderate drinking of red wine over a long period of time can protect against coronary heart disease. Expand
