Gelatin-catechin conjugate was synthesized by the laccase-catalyzed oxidation of catechin in the presence of gelatin. The conjugate had a good scavenging activity against superoxide anion radicals. Moreover, the conjugate showed an amplified inhibition effect on human low density lipoprotein oxidation initiated by 2,2′-azobis(2-amidinopropane)dihydrochloride as a radical generator.
