The present study reports the comparative in vitro cytotoxicity of theaflavin digallate (2) and isotheaflavin digallate (1), a new black tea theaflavin against Chinese hamster ovary cells (CHOK1) and rat glioma cells (C-6). Compound 1 was formed by the immobilized polyphenol oxidase (PPO) mediated enzymatic oxidation of (–) GCG and (–) ECG along with compound 2, which was formed by enzymatic oxidation of (–) EGCG and (–) ECG. The structures of the compounds were elucidated using ESI-Q-TOF-MS and 1D and 2D NMR. The results of a comparative cytotoxicity assay have revealed that isotheaflavin digallate is more cytotoxic than theaflavin digallate (IC50 246.8 μg/mL against CHOK1, IC50 288.8 μg/mL against C-6 cells).
