Inhibitory effect of epigallocatechin gallate on adhesion of murine melanoma cells to laminin.


We examined the effects of five kinds of green tea catechin on the adhesion of mouse melanoma B16 cells to laminin. (-)-Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) and (-)-epicatechin gallate in the culture medium were found to inhibit the cell adhesion. The adhesion to laminin pre-treated with EGCG was also impaired. Affinity chromatography revealed the binding… (More)
