- ... The study aims to analyze the phenolic compounds in Malus spp. and evaluate their antioxidant and pro‐apoptotic effects in BGC‐803 gastric cancer cells. The results showed that cyanidin‐3‐galactoside was the main polyphenol in Malus “Royalty” (MR), while catechin, epicatechin, and proanthocyanidin B1 and B2 contents were higher in Malus “Cinnabar” (MC) and Malus micromalus (MM) than in MR fruits. ...

- ... Flavonoids are a large family of polyphenolic compounds with manifold functions in plants. Present in a wide range of vegetables and fruits, flavonoids form an integral part of the human diet and confer multiple health benefits. Here, we report on metabolic engineering of the flavonoid biosynthetic pathways in apple (Malus domestica Borkh.) by overexpression of the maize (Zea mays L.) leaf colour ...
