Tea is a popular beverage. Recently, green tea was reported to increase the number of peroxisomes in rats. In this study, to find out whether the green tea-induced proliferation of peroxisomes is mediated by PPARalpha , a transient transfection assay was carried out to investigate the interactions of tea extracts (green tea, black tea,oolong tea and doongule tea) and tea components (epigallocatechin gallate, epigallocatechin, epicatechin gallate, epicatechin and gallic acid), with mouse cloned… CONTINUE READING
