Migration/invasion is involved in the multiple steps of metastasis, resulting in a poor prognosis of breast cancer. (-)-Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) in green tea inhibits the metastasis of some cancer cell lines. Cell migration/invasion assays using Boyden chambers demonstrated that (-)-epigallocatechin (EGC), another green tea catechin, inhibited(More)
We compared anti-proliferative activities of (-)-epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) and (-)-epigallocatechin (EGC) against HCT116 colorectal carcinoma cells. These catechins inhibited cell growth to nearly the same extent at low cell confluency in plates. However, their inhibitory effect grew weaker as cell confluence increased, and this tendency was more(More)
