Epigenetic changes are involved in learning and memory, and histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitors are considered potential therapeutic agents for Alzheimer's disease (AD). We previously reported that (-)-epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) acts as an HDAC inhibitor. Here, we demonstrate that EGCG reduced β-amyloid (Aβ) accumulation in vitro and rescued(More)
Elevated β-amyloid (Aβ) is a hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Recent evidence has suggested that the receptor of advanced glycation end products (RAGE) is a key target for Aβ-induced perturbation in AD, and blockade of RAGE significantly alleviates synaptic injury. Our previous study has suggested that β-asarone could reduce neuronal apoptosis and(More)
Epigenetic modifications are involved in cancer pathogenesis, and HDACis are considered potential therapeutic agents. We and others have shown the inhibitory activity of EGCG on HDAC1. But little is known about the effect of EGCG as on epigenetic regulation in cancer. Here, we try to demonstrate that EGCG acts as an HDACi downregulated APP expression, which(More)
