- n. A colorless compound, C6H5CH:CHC6H5, prepared by the action of heated lead oxid on toluene. It crystallizes in large monoclinic plates, melts at 124° C., and boils at 306–307° C. Also called toluylene and symmetrical diphenylethylene.
Resveratrol is the best-known member of a family of compounds called stilbenes, the general name for which is stilbene synthase STS.
The conversion of the stilbene molecule, which includes two benzene rings, between the cis - and trans - forms was observed by Zewail and his co-workers.
The crystal structure confirms the expected binding orientation of the stilbene substructure and the anticipated conjugating amide bond.
Finally, transfer of reducing equivalent from WhiB1 to GlgB disulfide was confirmed by 4-acetamido-4 'maleimidyl-stilbene-2, 2'-disulfonic acid trapping by the reduced disulfide of GlgB.
Both mass spectrometry data of tryptic digests and in vitro labeling of cysteine residues with 4-acetamido-4 'maleimidyl-stilbene-2,
Red wine contains a complex mixture of bioactive compounds, including flavonols, monomeric and polymeric flavan-3-ols, highly colored anthocyanins, as well as phenolic acids and the stilbene polyphenol, resveratrol.
