High molecular weight fractions of green tea, black tea, oolong tea, and pu-erh tea were found to induce apoptosis in human monoblastic leukemia U937 cells by examination of their ability to inhibit cell proliferation and to induce apoptotic body formation and DNA ladder formation. These tea fractions were also shown to induce apoptosis in stomach cancer MKN-45 cells. In addition to known antitumor-promoting activity of tea high molecular weight fractions, their apoptosis-inducing activity may… Expand
Effects of tea constituents on cell cycle progression of human leukemia U937 cells.
TLDR
The results showed that the high molecular weight fractions of greenTea and black tea caused G2/M arrest associated with up-regulation of p21/Waf1, but that epigallocatechin gallate, a major component of green tea catechins, gave little effects of cell cycle progression and p21 / Waf1 expression.

Green Tea Extract Induces Apoptosis in the AGS Gastric Carcinoma Cell Line
TLDR
It is suggested that consumption of green tea in gastric carcinoma patients may be effective in targeting cancer cells and slowing the progression of gastric cancers through inhibition of proteasome activity. Expand
Pu-erh Tea Water Extract Mediates Cell Cycle Arrest and Apoptosis in MDA-MB-231 Human Breast Cancer Cells
TLDR
Pu-erh tea water extract inhibits cell proliferation of MDA-MB-231 cells through the induction of apoptosis and the stimulation of cell cycle arrest, which is mediated via activation of the JNK-related pathway. Expand
Comparative antioxidant and cytotoxic effect of procyanidin fractions from grape and pine.
TLDR
This work demonstrates that the polyphenolic fractions studied show high antioxidant capacity in a concentration range that is not harmful to normal human cells, and provides useful information to help design safe antioxidant products that act without altering critical cell functions. Expand
Health-promoting effects of green tea
TLDR
This review summarizes several lines of evidence to indicate the health-promoting properties of green tea mainly based on the authors' own experimental findings. Expand
Pu-erh Tea Inhibits Tumor Cell Growth by Down-Regulating Mutant p53
TLDR
Light is shed on the application of Pu-erh tea as an anti-tumor agent with low side effects and the possible mechanism for Pu- erh tea action, which explained its selectivity in inhibiting tumor cells without affecting wild type cells is provided. Expand
GREEN TEA ANTIOXIDANT EFFECTS AND ITS AMELIORATIVE ROLE AGAINST MANY DISEASES
Green tea flavonoids have been found to play important roles in the non-enzymatic protection against oxidative stress, especially in case of cancer. Epidemiological and laboratory studies haveExpand
Apoptosis induction by epigallocatechin gallate involves its binding to Fas.
TLDR
The results suggest that EGCG-binding to Fas, presumably on the cell surface, triggers the Fas-mediated apoptosis in U937 cells. Expand

Apoptosis-inducing activity of polyphenol compounds derived from tea catechins in human histiolytic lymphoma U937 cells.
TLDR
Polyphenolic compounds derived from tea catechins were examined for apoptosis-inducing activity in human histiolytic lymphoma U937 cells and the data suggest the importance of the number and three dimensional localization of their phenolic groups in this activity. Expand
Apoptosis-inducing activity of galloyl monosaccharides in human histiocytic lymphoma U937 cells.
TLDR
Three galloyl monosaccharides contained in medicinal plants were examined for apoptosis-inducing activity in human histiocytic lymphoma cells, and TgG induced apoptosis in human colon and stomach cancer cell lines, indicating it is potentially useful as an anti-cancer agent. Expand
Chemical constituents of mainly active component fractionated from the aqueous tea non-dialysates, an antitumor promoter.
TLDR
A new antitumor promoting component, tea aqueous non-dialysates (TNDs), is introduced as a candidate for the primary prevention of cancer, although only tea catechins have been used in many studies on the anticancer effects of tea leaves. Expand
Importance of a pyrogallol-type structure in catechin compounds for apoptosis-inducing activity.
TLDR
Data suggest the important role of the 5'(3')-hydroxyl group in the B-ring and that a pyrogallol-type structure in a molecule is a minimum requirement for apoptosis induction by catechin compounds. Expand

Green tea polyphenols and cancer: biologic mechanisms and practical implications.
TLDR
The cancer chemopreventive effects associated with green tea and the molecular mechanisms that underlie the broad anticarcinogenic effect of polyphenols in green tea are discussed. Expand
Green tea epigallocatechin gallate shows a pronounced growth inhibitory effect on cancerous cells but not on their normal counterparts.
TLDR
EGCG at a concentration range of 40-200 microM induced a significant amount of apoptosis in WI38VA cultures, but not inWI38 cultures, as determined by terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase assay. Expand
Antimutagenic and anticarcinogenic activity of tea polyphenols.
TLDR
The mechanisms of antimutagenesis and anticarcinogenesis of tea polyphenols suggest that the inhibition of tumors may be due to both extracellular and intracellular mechanisms including the modulation of metabolism, blocking or suppression, modulation of DNA replication and repair effects, promotion, inhibition of invasion and metastasis, and induction of novel mechanisms.
