Molecules, Vol. 28, Pages 7811: Nutraceutical Potential of Grape (Vitis vinifera L.) Seed Oil in Oxidative Stress, Inflammation, Obesity and Metabolic Alterations
iliú Marcel Arakaki Asato Rita de Cássia Avellaneda Guimarães Vitis vinifera L. (grapevine) is a perennial plant of the Vitaceae family that is widely used to produce grapes and wines. Grape seed oil is rich in fatty acids such as linoleic acid (65–75%), vitamin E (50 mg), and phytosterols in addition to phenolic compounds, such as catechins (414 mg), epicatechins (130.4 mg), and gallic acid (77 µg), shows promise as a nutritional compound and is outstanding as a therapeutic substance with active properties for health, detected mainly by in vitro studies, as well as some in vivo studi...

Vineyard practices reduce the incidence of Aspergillus spp. and alter the composition of carposphere microbiome in grapes (Vitis vinifera L.)
Going through the new transitioning era of the “European Green Deal,” the search for alternative, non-chemical, disease control methods is essential. Aspergillus bunch rot is considered one of the most important diseases of grapevines resulting in severe yield losses and, major qualitative deterioration of grape products due to the production of mycotoxins. We investigated, in a two-year field study, the impact of agronomic practices like defoliation to enhance grape microclimate (DF), pruning method to reduce grape bunch density (LBD), and irrigation cut-off (NIR), at three developmental stages of grapevine (Pea size ...

Denovo production of resveratrol by engineered Saccharomyces cerevisiae W303-1a using pretreated Gracilaria corticata extracts
CONCLUSIONS: The strain W303-1a/IntδC-res1 utilized Gracillaria hydrolysate and produced 13.6 ± 0.54 mg resveratrol l-1 and further investigations are being carried out focusing on pathway engineering and optimization of process parameters to enhance resveratrol yield.PMID:37987932 | DOI:10.1007/s10529-023-03441-4 (Source: Biotechnology Letters)
