Pinosylvin is a pre-infectious stilbenoid toxin that is synthetized in plants during fungal infections, ozone induced stress and physical damage for example. It is a fungitoxin protecting the wood from fungal infection. It is present in the heartwood of Pinaceae and also found in Gnetum cleistostachyum.
Pinosylvin synthase is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction
This biosynthesis is noteworthy because plant biosyntheses employing cinnamic acid as a starting point are rare compared to the more common use of p-coumaric acid. Only a few identified compounds, such as anigorufone and curcumin, use cinnamic acid as their start molecule.
