*Please inquire the availability for this product. Ascochlorin is an antitumor fungal metabolite which 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. Ascochlorin also shows activity against Newcastle disease and herpes simplex viruses.
