Moreover, three ester derivatives of sinapic acid, methyl sinapate, [beta]-D-(3,4-disinapoyl)fructofuranosyl-[alpha]-D-(6- sinapoyl)glucopyranoside, and 1,2-disinapoyl-[beta]-D-glucopyranoside, have also shown comparable [sup.
2]-mediated peroxidation of human LDL and peroxyl radical can attack on erythrocyte membranes resulting in AAPH-(2,2'-azobis(2- amidinopropane) dihydrochloride-) induced hemolysis; however, ethyl sinapate at a concentration of 10 [micro]M was found to act more effectively (76%) and suppressed the LDL oxidation than sinapic acid (59%).
Tests have shown that plants produce sinapate esters and send them to the outer layer of their leaves to protect themselves.
In particular, the invention relates to the inhibition of the enzymatic activity of a UDP-glucose: sinapate glucosyltransferase (SGT) in transgenic plant cells.
