miRVine: a microRNA expression atlas of grapevine based on small RNA sequencing.

BACKGROUND:miRNAs are the most abundant class of small non-coding RNAs, and they are involved in post-transcriptional regulations, playing a crucial role in the refinement of genetic programming during plant development. Here we present a comprehensive picture of miRNA regulation inVitis vinifera L. plant during its complete life cycle. Furthering our knowledge about the post-transcriptional regulation of plant development is fundamental to understand the biology of such an important crop.RESULTS:We analyzed 70 small RNA libraries, prepared from berries, inflorescences, tendrils, buds, carpels, stamens and other samples at different developmental stages. One-hundred

How much is oxygen affecting your wine?

Too much oxygen in bottled wine can seriously affect its shelf-life. This can be seen as a loss of fresh and fruity characters, lower levels of preservatives and an increased risk of spoilage. Audits of bottling lines carried out by the AWRI have shown that over 60% of the oxygen introduced into wine at bottling is present in the headspace and not detected by conventional quality control checks.

Advance on the bioactivity and potential applications of dietary fibre from grape pomace.

The winemaking grape pomaces are rich in bioactive phytochemicals and dietary fibre (DF). DFs are phenolic-rich DF matrix and are dietary supplement with benefits on human health. As a result of the increased attention to sustainability of winemaking by-products, efforts have been made to use grape pomace in different bio-industries. In this review, we summarize the existing knowledge on the bioactivity and potential applications of DF from grape pomace, as well as the chemical compositions of DF. Furthermore, the biological activities of DF such as, anti-cancer activity, antibacterial activity, anti-inflammatory

Mycobiota and toxicogenicAlternaria spp. strains in Malbec wine grapes from DOC San Rafael, Mendoza, Argentina

Alternaria, one of the most mycotoxigenic genus commonly found in wine grapes, could represent a high risk for wine consumer’s health. The aims of this work were to identify the mycobiota of Malbec wine grapes under the influence of routine control viticulture practices, to identifyAlternaria spp. strains by morphological and molecular methods and characterize their toxicogenic ability and pathogenicity.Alternaria was the main component of the wine grape mycobiota of the DOC San Rafael at harvest time (81%) followed byCladosporium (7%) and only in minor percentage byPenicillium (4%) andAspergillus (3%) among
