(-)Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCg) stimulated iodination of human peripheral blood monocytes, polymorphonuclear cells (PMN), and human promyelocytic leukemic HL-60 cells, dependent on time, dose, and temperature. However, EGCg did not affect iodination of nonadherent peripheral blood mononuclear cells, red blood cells, or 11 other cultured cell lines. Although various immunoregulators such as lipopolysaccharide (LPS), opsonized zymosan, 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA) and tumor… CONTINUE READING
