BTH-treated grapes had at least three times more anthocyanin than untreated grapes. In addition, BTH-treated grape skins showed a substantially more powerful effect in laboratory experiments in fostering the release of NO from artery samples. While BTH produced healthier grapes, the effect did not carry over into wine produced with those grapes. Wine made from BTH-treated grapes had better color stability, but did not show higher levels of anthocyanin.

Speeding the search for potential Alzheimer's disease drugs

ACS Chemical Biology

With most of the world's 29 million known chemical substances never tested for medical use, tomorrow's miracle cures may be collecting dust on a laboratory shelf. Screening those compounds for drugs that tackle the underlying cause of Alzheimer's disease (AD) poses special problems. Those drugs would not just treat memory loss and other symptoms, but would inhibit the formation of amyloid beta -- the abnormal brain protein implicated in AD.

A research team headed by Michael H. Hecht and Young-Tae Chang now report development of a new screening method for inhi
