Abstract

The differential biological responsiveness to green tea polyphenols (GTP) and inclusion of NF-kB as a mechanism in normal cells, immortalized cell line and cancer cells, was investigated. Cell growth, alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity, DNA cell cycle and morphology were also analyzed. It was observed that at the higher dose of GTP, number of cells decreased. It was found that GTP imparted differential dose-based growth and function inhibitory responses toward the carcinoma cells as compared to the normal cells.
