Matcha green tea (MGT) inhibits the propagation of cancer stem cells (CSCs), by targeting mitochondrial metabolism, glycolysis and multiple cell signalling pathways

Figure 4. Venn diagram of proteomics data of MGT-treated MCF7 cells versus doxycycline-treated MCF7 cells. Proteomic analysis validates the metabolic effects of MGT on breast cancer cells. (A) Venn diagram of mitochondrial down-regulated proteins in MGT-treated cells versus doxycycline-treated cells. Note that, among the mitochondrial down-regulated proteins by the two treatments, eight are commonly down-regulated. (B) Venn diagram of glycolytic down-regulated proteins in MGT-treated cells versus doxycycline-treated cells. Note that the two different treatments down-regulated several glycolytic proteins and four of those were in common among the two.
