Background: Decisions made on behalf of other people are sometimes more rational than those made for oneself. In this study we used a monetary gambling task to ask if the framing effect in decision making is reduced in surrogate decision making.Methods: Participants made a series of choices between a predetermined sure option and a risky gambling option of winning a proportion of an initial stake. Trials were presented as either a gain or a loss relative to that initial stake.
The results indicate that the growth inhibitory activity of resveratrol is abrogated by the removal of the trans stilbene double bond (no reduction of growth fraction in dihydroresveralogues at 100 M). Interestingly, at low doses (5 10 M), many resveralogues induce a significant increase in proliferation compared to control untreated cells. SIRT1 activity in the presence of each compound was measured using an in vitro deacetylation assay and, whilst most resveralogues are SIRT1 activators, none of the compounds examined produced a significant increase in SIRT1 activation compared to the parent compound.
