PURPOSE A constituent of green tea, (-)-epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), has been known to possess anti-cancer properties. In this study, we investigated the time-course anticancer effects of EGCG on human ovarian cancer cells to provide insights into the molecular-level understanding of growth suppression mechanism involved in EGCG-mediated apoptosis and cell cycle arrest. METHODS Three human ovarian cancer cell lines (p53 negative, SKOV-3 cells; mutant type p53, OVCAR-3 cells; and wild… CONTINUE READING
