Inhibition of hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF)-1α activity of methylophiopogonanone B (1) and its derivatives were investigated. As the modification of the structure of 1, dihydrochalcone (11) was leaded and showed one order higher activity (IC50: 0.2 μg/mL) than methylophiopogonanone B (1) (IC50: 2.2 μg/mL).
