- ... Catechins have high anti-bacterial activity against various microorganisms. In this study, the mechanism of anti-bacterial activity of catechins was investigated using Escherichia coli. Transmission electron microscope analysis revealed that deposits containing EGCg were found only on the outer membrane, which is the outermost layer of the cell surface, in E. coli cells treated with EGCg. Based on ...
