Abstract

Green tea polyphenol (−)-epigallocatechin-3-O-gallate (EGCG) has been attributed to the activation of its cell surface sensing receptor 67 kDa laminin receptor (67LR). However, the action of EGCG to activate 67LR remains unknown. Here we show that EGCG undergoes oligomer formation on its surface receptor 67LR.
