The female flowers of hops are used throughout the world as a flavoring agent for beer. Recently, there has been increasing interest in the potential estrogenic properties of hop extracts. Among the possible estrogenic compounds in hops, 8-prenylnaringenin is perhaps most significant due to its high in vitro potency exceeding that of other known phytoestrogens. Since data regarding the pharmacokinetic properties of this compound are lacking, we investigated the in vitro metabolism of 8… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Metabolism of xanthohumol and isoxanthohumol, prenylated flavonoids from hops (Humulus lupulus L.), by human liver microsomes.
TLDR
Since XN can be converted to IX through acid-catalyzed cyclization in the stomach, XN might contribute to the in vivo levels of estrogenic 8-PN following consumption of hops extracts.
IDENTIFICATION OF HUMAN HEPATIC CYTOCHROME P450 ENZYMES INVOLVED IN THE METABOLISM OF 8-PRENYLNARINGENIN AND ISOXANTHOHUMOL FROM HOPS (HUMULUS LUPULUS L.)
TLDR
The results suggest that the estrogenicity of hop constituents in vivo will depend in part on metabolic conversion that may show individual variation.
Activation of proestrogens from hops (Humulus lupulus L.) by intestinal microbiota; conversion of isoxanthohumol into 8-prenylnaringenin.
TLDR
Because prenylflavonoids are present in many beers with IX being the major constituent, the results raise the question whether moderate beer consumption might contribute to increased in vivo levels of 8-PN and even influence human health.
Therapeutic Perspectives of 8-Prenylnaringenin, a Potent Phytoestrogen from Hops
TLDR
The implications of using 8-PN in future treatments of menopausal and post-menopausal symptoms, including the need for precise evidence and further investigations to define the safety risks related to its therapeutic use, are emphasized.
Analytical methods for quantitation of prenylated flavonoids from hops.
TLDR
This review summarizes currently available analytical methods for quantitative analysis of the major prenylated flavonoids, with an emphasis on the LC-MS and LC- MS-MS methods and their recent applications to biomedical research on hops.
New metabolic pathways for flavanones catalyzed by rat liver microsomes.
TLDR
The metabolism of several simple flavanones by rat liver microsomes was investigated and compared and several novel metabolic pathways were observed including C-ring desaturation to form the corresponding flavones and reduction of carbonyl group to form flavan-4-ol derivatives.
Prenylation and Backbone Structure of Flavonoids and Isoflavonoids from Licorice and Hop Influence Their Phase I and II Metabolism.
TLDR
In vitro liver metabolism of 11 prenylated flavonoids and isoflavonoids was investigated by determining their phase I glucuronyl and sulfate metabolites using pork liver preparations and a mass spectrometry-based data interpretation guideline was proposed for the tentative annotation of the position of hydroxyl groups, considering its relevance for estrogenic activity.

Flavonoids as Phytoestrogenic Components of Hops and Beer
TLDR
This review provides insight into the unusual hop phytoestrogens and shows numerous health benefits associated with their wide spectrum of biological activities including estrogenic, anticancer, neuropreventive, antinflamatory, and antimicrobial properties.

In vitro biotransformation of xanthohumol, a flavonoid from hops (Humulus lupulus), by rat liver microsomes.
TLDR
This work investigated the biotransformation of XN by rat liver microsomes and tentatively identified three major polar microsomal metabolites and a nonpolar XN metabolite, identified as dehydrocycloxanthohumol.
In vitro inhibition of human P450 enzymes by prenylated flavonoids from hops, Humulus lupulus
TLDR
It is suggested that the hop flavonoids are potent and selective inhibitors of human cytochrome P450 and warrant further in vivo investigations.
In vitro biotransformation of flavonoids by rat liver microsomes.
TLDR
Sixteen naturally occurring flavonoids were investigated as substrates for cytochrome P450 in uninduced and Aroclor 1254-induced rat liver microsomes and results indicate that demethylation only occurs in the B-ring when the methoxy group is positioned at C4', and not at the C3'-position.
Identification of a potent phytoestrogen in hops (Humulus lupulus L.) and beer.
TLDR
A potent phytoestrogen is identified in hops, 8-prenylnaringenin, which has an activity greater than other established plant estrogens and may provide an explanation for the accounts of menstrual disturbances in female hop workers.
Prenylflavonoids: a new class of non-steroidal phytoestrogen (Part 1). Isolation of 8-isopentenylnaringenin and an initial study on its structure-activity relationship.
TLDR
Bioassay-guided fractionation of a methanolic extract of a Thai crude drug resulted in the isolation of 8-isopentenylnaringenin as an estrogen agonist with a activity of about an order of magnitude greater than genistein.
Oestrogenic activity of the hop phyto-oestrogen, 8-prenylnaringenin.
TLDR
The oestrogenic activity of 8-prenyl-naringenin in vitro was greater than that of established phyto-oestrogens such as coumestrol, genistein and daidzein and was confirmed in an acute in vivo test using uterine vascular permeability as an end point.
Determination of the hop-derived phytoestrogen, 8-prenylnaringenin, in beer by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry.
TLDR
The concentration of 8-prenylnaringenin in beers and, possibly, its absence depend on the selection of particular hop varieties, the hopping rate, or the type of hop product used in brewing.
Prenylated flavonoids in the roots of yellow lupin.
Prenylflavonoids from hops inhibit the metabolic activation of the carcinogenic heterocyclic amine 2-amino-3-methylimidazo[4, 5-f]quinoline, mediated by cDNA-expressed human CYP1A2.
TLDR
Examination of prenylflavonoids found in hops and beer found that they are potent inhibitors of the metabolic activation of IQ and may have the potential to act as chemopreventive agents against cancer induced by heterocyclic amines activated by CYP1A2.
