Our previous study showed that the tea extract, epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), protects against microcystin-LR (MC-LR) -mediated apoptosis of human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs); however, the mechanism underlying MC-LR-induced HUVEC apoptosis remains incompletely understood. In this study, we investigated whether the nuclear factor erythroid… CONTINUE READING
