Polyphenolic EGCG and PGG are partially selective inhibitors of protein phosphatase–1 (PP1). The galloyl group in the polyphenols plays a major role in phosphatase inhibition. Molecular docking predicts that EGCG binds to part of the hydrophobic groove at the catalytic center of PP1 catalytic subunit. The PP1 inhibitory features of the polyphenols might be implicated in their cell death inducing effects.
