    Resveratrol production in Saccharomyces cerevisiae was compared to that in Escherichia coli. In both systems, 4-coumarate:coenzyme A ligase from tobacco and stilbene synthase from grapes were expressed. When p-coumaric acid was used as the precursor, resveratrol accumulations in the culture medium were observed to be comparable in E. coli (16 mg/liter) and yeast (6 mg/liter)
