Effect of green tea polyphenols on angiogenesis induced by an angiogenin-like protein

Angiogenesis is a fundamental process by which new blood vessels are formed. The angiogenesis process is induced by several growth factors. Among them angiogenin is the most potent blood vessel inducer known. In this paper, we have investigated the effect of green tea polyphenols, mainly the catechins, on an angiogenin-like protein induced angiogenesis process. The angiogenin-like protein was isolated from goat serum and the effect of green tea components was tested by the chicken chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) assay. The results show that green tea components are capable of reducing the vascularization on CAM that is induced by the angiogenin-like protein.
