Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) increases the formation of cytosolic lipid droplets by a mechanism that is independent of the rate of triglyceride biosynthesis and involves an enhanced fusion between lipid droplets, a process that is crucial for their growth in size. EGCG treatment reduced the secretion of both triglycerides and apolipoprotein B-100 (apoB-100) VLDLs but not of transferrin, albumin, or total proteins, indicating that EGCG diverts triglycerides from VLDL assembly to storage in… CONTINUE READING
