    Biological Activity

    Ginsenoside compound K (C-K) is a metabolite of the protopanaxadiol-type saponins of Panax ginseng C.A. Meyer (Araliaceae), has long been used to treat against the development of cancer, inflammation, allergies, and diabetes; C-K acts as a unique HUVEC migration inhibitor by regulating MMP expression, as well as the activity of SPHK1 and its related sphingolipid metabolites.[1]
    Ginsenoside compound K, the intestinal metabolite of ginseng saponin, has various chemopreventive and chemotherapeutic activities, including anti-tumor activity; C-K suppresses the activation of the NF-κB pathway, may become a potential cytotoxic drug in the prevention and treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma( HCC).[2]
    Ginsenoside compound K shows significant anti-proliferative effects and pro
    -apoptotic effects in HCT-116 and SW-480 cells at concentrations of 30-50 uM, suggests that C-K could be potentially effective anti-colorectal cancer agent.[3]
    Ginsenoside CK has anti-cancer effect on NPC cells, C-K-induced apoptosis of HK-1 cells was mediated by the mitochondrial pathway and could significantly inhibit tumor growth in vivo.[4]
