Ginsenoside Rc is a steroid glycoside, and triterpene saponins, found exclusively in the plant genus Panax (ginseng); have properties that inhibit or prevent tumors growth.
in vitro: Rc reduced the proliferation and viability of 3T3-L1 preadipocytes in a dose-dependent manner. Treatment with Rc decreased the number of adipocytes and reduced lipid accumulation in maturing 3T3-L1 preadipocytes, demonstrating an inhibitory effect on lipogenesis. Rc directly induced lipolysis in adipocytes and down-regulated the expression of major transcription factors of the adipogenesis pathway, such as PPARγ and C/EBPα . overexpression of catalase induced by Rc resulted in suppression of RS production in kidney human embryo kidney 293T cells (HEK293T) cells, and that oxidative stress induced activation of PI3K/Akt and inhibition of the AMPK pathway and FoxO1 phosphorylation, leading to down-regulation of catalase, a FoxO1-targeting gene. In addition, treatment of HEK293T cells with Rc resulted in cAMP-response element-binding protein (CREB)-binding protein (CBP) regulated FoxO1 acetylation .
