Online Cover This week features a Research Article that examined the effect of resveratrol, a polyphenolic compound found in grapes, on human CD4+ T cell function. When used at low doses, resveratrol reprogrammed the metabolism of the T cells, making them more responsive to antigen and enhancing their production of an inflammatory cytokine, suggesting that the therapeutic use of resveratrol should be carefully assessed.
