Modulation of endocrine systems and food intake by green tea epigallocatechin gallate.
TLDR
Endocrine changes induced by parenteral administration of EGCG may relate to the observed growth inhibition and regression of human prostate and breast tumors in athymic mice treated with E GCG as well as play a role in the mechanism by which EGCGs inhibits cancer initiation and promotion in various animal models of cancer.

Effect of green tea extract on obese women: a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial.
TLDR
This study showed no statistical difference in % reduction in BW, BMI and WC between the GTE and placebo groups after 12 weeks of treatment. Expand
Tea, obesity, and diabetes.
TLDR
The mechanistic results of this review may possibly be utilized in the treatment of obesity, diabetes, and other related diseases using tea- and EGCG-based folk medicines. Expand
Green tea: biochemical and biological basis for health benefits.
TLDR
Evidence based on modern scientific evaluations of green tea appears to support the possibility that green tea compounds, especially catechins, are medically valuable, and it is discussed that tea polyphenols are widely used as natural antioxidants for prevention of oxidation of edible oils or discoloring of foods. Expand
Antimitogenic effect of green tea (-)-epigallocatechin gallate on 3T3-L1 preadipocytes depends on the ERK and Cdk2 pathways.
TLDR
Investigating the pathways of EGCG's modulation of the mitogenesis of 3T3-L1 preadipocytes demonstrated the ERK- and Cdk2-dependent antimitogenic effects of E GCG, which was more effective than epicatechin, epicateschin gallate, and epigallocatechin in changing the mitogenic signals. Expand
Modulation of obesity by a green tea catechin.
Inhibitory effect of green tea (-)-epigallocatechin gallate on resistin gene expression in 3T3-L1 adipocytes depends on the ERK pathway.
TLDR
The data suggest that EGCG downregulates Rstn expression via a pathway that is dependent on the ERK pathway, and may modulate the distribution of RStn protein between the intracellular and extracellular compartments. Expand
Interferon gamma polymorphisms associated with susceptibility to tuberculosis in a Han Taiwanese population.
TLDR
The IFN-γ polymorphisms, rs1861494, rs2069718, and rs2430561, may confer the risk of TB in Han Taiwanese. Expand
REGULATION OF METAMORPHOSIS-ASSOCIATED CHANGES IN THE LIPID METABOLISM OF SELECTED VERTEBRATES
TLDR
The coordinate regulation of development-associated changes in lipid metabolism results from interactions among hormones and other internal and environmental cues, which is essential for ensuring availability of lipid during times of need. Expand
Two cholinesterase activities and genes are present in amphioxus.
TLDR
The cholinesterase (ChE) activity of the cephalochordate amphioxus is investigated and it is concluded that Amphioxus possesses two ChE activities andTwo ChE genes. Expand
