Description
Ascochlorin is an antitumor fungal metabolite with antitumor and antiviral properties.

Ascochlorin is soluble in ethanol, methanol, DMF and DMSO and has limited water solubility.

    CAS Number

    26166-39-2

    Molecular Formula

    C23H29ClO4

    Molecular Weight

    404.9

    Mechanism of Action

    Ascochlorin specifically inhibits matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) activity through suppression of activator protein-1 (AP-1)-dependent induction of MMP-9 gene expression. Via AP-1 suppression, ascochlorin selectively kills MX-1 cells, a human breast cancer cell line lacking estrogen receptors.

    Storage Conditions

    -20°C
