    $213.35 - $746.70
    Asterric acid is a fungal metabolite with anti-angiogenic properties, isolated from a number of Aspergillus and Penicillium species. It is an inhibitor of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), inhibiting VEGF-induced tube formation of human umbilical vein endothelial cells.

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