Theaflavins enhance intestinal barrier of Caco-2 Cell monolayers through the expression of AMP-activated protein kinase-mediated Occludin, Claudin-1, and ZO-1
It was concluded that TFs could enhance intestinal barrier function by increasing the expression of TJ-related proteins through the activation of AMPK in Caco-2 cells. Expand
Theaflavins, dimeric catechins, inhibit peptide transport across Caco-2 cell monolayers via down-regulation of AMP-activated protein kinase-mediated peptide transporter PEPT1.
It is demonstrated that TFs inhibit peptide transport across Caco-2 cell monolayers, probably through suppression of AMPK-mediated PEPT1 expression, which should be considered a new bioactivity of TFs in black tea. Expand
Benzotropolone moiety in theaflavins is responsible for inhibiting peptide-transport and activating AMP-activated protein kinase in Caco-2 cells
Objective : In the small intestine, peptide transporter 1 (PEPT1) plays a role in the transport of di- and tri-peptides. Recently, we found that theaflavins (TFs), dimeric catechins, inhibited theExpand
