Resveratrol (RV) is a polyphenol non- ﬂavonoid compound present in a number of plant species but mainly in the berries of the red grape Vitis vinifera. The Introduction powerful antioxidant action of this molecule is well doc- Resveratrol (RV) is a polyphenol nonﬂavonoid compound umented. In this work we evaluated the effects of this substance by adopting diverse experimental strategies. In belonging to the family of natural phytoalexins which are produced by plants to combat the attack of pathogens particular, we studied the effects on cell vitality and cycle by MTT and cytoﬂuorimetric assays. In addition, we and/or stress.
