Autoxidative quinone formation in vitro and metabolite formation in vivo from tea polyphenol (-)-epigallocatechin-3-gallate: studied by real-time mass spectrometry combined with tandem mass ion mapping.

Abstract

(-)-Epigallocatechin-3- gallate (EGCG), the most abundant and biologically active compound in tea, has been proposed to have beneficial health effects, including prevention of cancer and heart disease. Based mainly on studies in cell-line systems, in which EGCG is not stable, different mechanisms of action of EGCG have been proposed. It has been proposed… (More)
