Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), a polyphenol in green tea, is an effective antioxidant and possesses neuroprotective effects. Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and cyclic AMP response element-binding protein (CREB) are crucial for neurogenesis and synaptic plasticity. In this study, we aimed to assess the protective effects of EGCG against sevoflurane-induced neurotoxicity in neonatal mice. Distinct groups of C57BL/6 mice were given EGCG (25, 50, or 75 mg/kg body weight) from… 

Effect of Epigallocatechin-3-gallate on Stress-Induced Depression in a Mouse Model: Role of Interleukin-1β and Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor

This study demonstrates that the antidepressive action of EGCG involves downregulation of serum IL-1β, upregulation of BDNF mRNA in the hippocampus, and reduction of CA3 neuronal lesions.

Epigallocatechin-3-gallate confers protection against corticosterone-induced neuron injuries via restoring extracellular signal-regulated kinase 1/2 and phosphatidylinositol-3 kinase/protein kinase B signaling pathways

Evidence is provided to support the possible involvement of extracellular signal-regulated kinase 1/2 (ERK1/2) and phosphatidylinositol-3 kinase/ protein kinase B (PI3K/AKT) pathways in EGCG-mediated protection against corticosterone-induced neuron injuries.

The effect of epigallocatechin-3-gallate on morphine-induced memory impairments in rat: EGCG effects on morphine neurotoxicity

The data indicate that EGCG can improve memory in morphine- treated rats, and molecular mechanisms underlying the detected effects could be related to the prevention of apoptosis and oxidative stress in the hippocampus of morphine-treated rats.

Phosphodiesterase 4 Inhibitor Roflumilast Protects Rat Hippocampal Neurons from Sevoflurane Induced Injury via Modulation of MEK/ERK Signaling Pathway

Roflumilast promoted hippocampal neurons viability, and reduced apoptosis possibly via modulation of MEK/ERK signaling pathway, and could recover sevoflurane-induced deactivation of MEk/ERk pathway.

The Effects of Hesperidin on Neuronal Apoptosis and Cognitive Impairment in the Sevoflurane Anesthetized Rat are Mediated Through the PI3/Akt/PTEN and Nuclear Factor-κB (NF-κB) Signaling Pathways

In the sevoflurane anesthetized neonatal rat model, treatment with HPD reduced neuronal degeneration, hippocampal inflammation, and improvised memory, learning, and cognitive responses by modulating the PI3/Akt/PTEN and NF-κB signaling pathways.

Function of Green Tea Catechins in the Brain: Epigallocatechin Gallate and its Metabolites

The in vitro experiments suggested that EGCG and its metabolites could reach the brain parenchyma through the blood–brain barrier and induce neuritogenesis suggest that metabolites of E GCG may play an important role in reducing neurodegenerative diseases.

BDNF can alleviate ropivacaine-induced neuronal injury by activating Akt signaling pathway, consequently modulating the proliferation and apoptosis of neurons.

Epigallocatechin-3-Gallate Promotes the Growth of Mink Hair Follicles Through Sonic Hedgehog and Protein Kinase B Signaling Pathways

EGCG promotes the growth of mink hair follicles at concentrations of 0.5–2.5 μM, and this growth-promoting effect of EGCG may be associated with the increased proliferation of DPCs and ORSCs through activating Shh and AKT signaling pathways.

Sevoflurane exposure during the second trimester induces neurotoxicity in offspring rats by hyperactivation of PARP-1

It is proposed that sevoflurane exposure during the second trimester incudes neurotoxicity in offspring rats by hyperactivation of PARP-1 via STEP61/Pyk2 pathway and increased ROS levels.



Neuroprotective Effects of (-)-Epigallocatechin-3-gallate in a Transgenic Mouse Model of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

It is demonstrated that oral administration of EGCG beginning from a pre-symptomatic stage significantly delayed the onset of disease, and extended life span, in a transgenic mouse model of ALS.

Neuroprotection by epigallo catechin gallate against bupivacaine anesthesia induced toxicity involves modulation of PI3/Akt/PTEN signalling in N2a and SH-SY5Y cells.

This study aims to investigate if epigallo catechin gallate (EGCG) could inhibit or prevent bupivacaine toxicity in neuroblastoma cells (N2a and SH-SY5Y).

Epigallocatechin-3-gallate prevents oxidative stress-induced cellular senescence in human mesenchymal stem cells via Nrf2

Findings indicate the important role of EGCG in preventing oxidative stress-induced cellular senescence in hMSCs through Nrf2 activation, which has applications for the massive production of more suitable h MSCs for cell-based therapy.

Neuroprotection signaling pathway of nerve growth factor and brain-derived neurotrophic factor against staurosporine induced apoptosis in hippocampal H19-7 cells

The survival action of NGF and BDNF against STS-induced neurotoxicity was mediated by the activation of PI3K/Akt signaling through the Trk receptor, which abolished the protective effect of both neurotrophins, while active Akt prevented cell death.

Green Tea Polyphenol Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) Differentially Inhibits Interleukin-1β-Induced Expression of Matrix Metalloproteinase-1 and -13 in Human Chondrocytes

EGCG at micromolar concentrations was highly effective in inhibiting the IL-1β-induced glycosaminoglycan release from human cartilage explants in vitro and EGCG showed a differential, dose-dependent inhibitory effect on the expression and activity of MMPs and the activities of transcription factors NF-κB and AP-1.

Green Tea Epigallocatechin-3-Gallate (EGCG) Modulates Amyloid Precursor Protein Cleavage and Reduces Cerebral Amyloidosis in Alzheimer Transgenic Mice

It is reported that (-)-epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), the main polyphenolic constituent of green tea, reduces Aβ generation in both murine neuron-like cells and primary neurons derived from Swedish mutant APP-overexpressing mice, raising the possibility that EGCG dietary supplementation may provide effective prophylaxis for AD.

Antidepressant- and anxiolytic-like effects of the phosphodiesterase-4 (PDE4) inhibitor rolipram on behavior depend on cyclic AMP-response element binding protein (CREB)-mediated neurogenesis in the hippocampus

The results suggest that rolipram produces its effects on behavior in a manner that at least partially depends on its neurogenic action in the hippocampus, targeting mitotic progenitor cells rather than newborn or mature neurons.

Perinatal Supplementation with Omega-3 Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids Improves Sevoflurane-Induced Neurodegeneration and Memory Impairment in Neonatal Rats

It is demonstrated that neonatal exposure to prolonged sevoflurane could impair the immediate fear response, working memory and short-term memory of rats at their adulthood, which may through inducing neuronal apoptosis and decreasing neurogenesis be mitigated by perinatal n-3 PUFAs supplementation.
