Biological Activity for Xanthohumol

Xanthohumol is a p97 ATPase (VCP) inhibitor. Binds to the N domain of p97, impairing autophagosome function and maturation. Inhibits proliferation and induces apoptosis in a variety of human cancer cell lines. Also inhibits DGAT in rat liver microsomes (IC50 = 50.3 μM).
