dc.description.abstractThis study was performed to assess the impact of glutathione on the reaction between (+)-catechin and carbonyl compounds in wine-related conditions. (+)-Catechin (0.50 mM) and either glyoxylic acid (0.25 mM) or acetaldehyde (0.25 mM) were added to a model wine system with 0.0, 0.25, and 2.5 mM of glutathione added. UPLC-DAD and LC-MS analysis showed that the formation of carbonyl-bridged (+)-catechin dimers was inhibited in the samples with a glutathione to carbonyl ratio of 10:1 compared to the samples without glutathione. At a ratio of 1:1, glutathione inhibited the acetaldehyde-bridged dimers but only had a minor impact on the glyoxylic acid-bridged dimers. Further investigations showed that this trend of inhibition by glutathione on the glyoxylic acid-derived dimer was independent of temperatures, 20 °C vs 45 °C, or the presence of metal ions, 0.2 mg/L copper(II) and 5 mg/L iron(II). (1)H NMR analysis and LC-MS analysis provided evidence that glutathione inhibited dimer formation via different mechanisms depending on the carbonyl compound. For acetaldehyde-derived dimers, the main mode of inhibition was the ability of glutathione to form a (methyl-glutathionyl-methine)-(+)-catechin complex. Alternatively, the formation of a glutathione-glyoxylic acid addition product impeded the reaction between glyoxylic acid with (+)-catechin. These results demonstrate that glutathione, at sufficient concentration, can have a substantial impact on carbonyl-derived polymerization reactions in wine-like conditions.
