EGCG 98% min.
Product: (-)-Epigallocatechin Gallate
It exhibits potent antitumor, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties. Arrests cell cycling at G0/G1 phase and induces apoptosis in a dose-dependent manner. Shown to inhibit PMA-induced skin thickening and to activate of protein kinase C. Also activates ornithine decarboxylase and interleukin-1a mRNA and protein expression. Acts as an inhibitor of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) gene expression and enzyme activity. Also blocks peroxynitrite-mediated formation of 8-oxodeoxyguanosine and 3-nitrotyrosine. Strongly and directly inhibits telomerase in cell-free systems and in cancer cell lines.
