Isoxanthohumol is a prenylflavonoid compound extracted from Humulus lupulus L., the common hop plant. It has displayed strong estrogenic effects and has been used for anti-cancer research. Isoxanthohumol has also been shown to form the potent phytoestrogen 8-prenylnaringenin (8PN), which forms by cleaving off an ether group.
Oncology research on Isoxanthohumol activity has shown a significant degree of efficacy against breast, prostate and colon cancer cell lines. It has also been to shown to attenuate transforming growth factor-β (TGF-1 β) expression and disrupt Janus kinase/ signal transducer and activator of transcription (JAK/STAT) pathways which activate oncogenic genes.
