    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.
    Mechanism of ActionAscochlorin 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.
