Dehydrozingerone (1080-12-2) is a structural half analog of curcumin (Cat.# 10-1243) and is isolated from ginger rhizomes. Dehydrozingerone displays antioxidant, antibacterial and antifungal properties.1 It has also been shown to possess various antitumor effects2,3 and inhibit growth factor/peroxide-stimulated vascular smooth muscle function4.
