An acidic polysaccharide from the green tea leaves (Camellia sinensis) beyond the useful date was isolated and characterized. Crude polysaccharides (TPS) was extracted with hot water and separated on a DEAE Sepharose FF gel filtration column to obtain ATPS1. The structure of ATPS1 was characterized by HPGPC, IR, UV, (1)H NMR, and (13)C NMR methods. The molecular weight of ATPS1 was determined as 56kDa by HPGPC. The main glycosyl residues of ATPS1 were α-, β-configuration, including signal of β-d-Galp, α-l-Araf, α-d-Manp, α-Rhap, and α-d-Glcp. The DPPH and hydroxyl radical scavenging activities of ATPS1 are lower than those of crude TPS. However, very low concentration of EGCG significantly enhanced DPPH radical scavenging potential of ATPS1. The reducing power of crude TPS is much higher than that of ATPS1. The reducing power of ATPS1 is very weak; however, very low concentration of EGCG (8.0μg/mL) significantly enhanced the reducing power of ATPS1.
