  • The anti-allergic effect of epigallocatechin-3-O-(3-O-methyl) gallate (EGCG3”Me) and epigallocatechin-3-O-(4-O-methyl) gallate (EGCG4”Me) isolated from Japanese or Taiwanese tea (Camellia sinensis L.) leaves. These catechins strongly inhibited mast cell activation and histamine release after FcepsilonRI cross-linking through the suppression of tyrosine phosphorylation (Lyn) of cellular protein kinase, and the suppression of myosin light chain phosphorylation and high-affinity IgE receptor… CONTINUE READING
