    Biological Activity

    Ginsenoside Rc (Rc), a protopanaxadiol type ginsenoside, is the active component mainly responsible for the therapeutic and pharmacologic properties of ginseng, which are derived from its suppression of superoxide-induced free radicals, Rc  can modulate Forkhead box O (FoxO1)phosphorylation through activation of PI3K/Akt and inhibition of AMPK and FoxO1 acetylation through interaction with CBP and SIRT1, and that this leads to upregulation of catalase under conditions of oxidative stress.[1]
    Ginsenoside Rc from Korean Red Ginseng (Panax ginseng C.A. Meyer) exhibits anticancer and anti-inflammatory activities, can attenuate inflammatory symptoms of gastritis, hepatitis and arthritis.[2]
    Ginsenoside Rc and Re induce c-fos in MCF-7 human breast carcinoma cells at both the mRNA and protein levels,  they act via other transcription factors and not via estrogen receptor in c-Fos expression.[3]
    Ginsenoside Rc significantly enhances glucose uptake by inducing ROS generation, which leads to AMPK and p38 MAPK activation.,consequently, it can be used as a potent natural anti-diabetic agent.[4]
    Ginsenoside Rc can promote anti-adipogenic activity on 3T3-L1 adipocytes by down-regulating C/EBPα and PPARγ.[5]
