CAS No. 52705-93-8
Ginsenoside Rd (Panaxoside Rd, Sanchinoside Rd), a minor ginseng saponin, has several pharmacological activities such as immunosuppressive activity, anti-inflammatory activity, immunological adjuvant, anti-cancer activity and wound-healing activity. Ginsenoside Rd inhibits TNFα-induced NF-κB transcriptional activity with an IC50 of 12.05±0.82 μM in HepG2 cells. Ginsenoside Rd inhibits expression of COX-2 and iNOS mRNA. Ginsenoside Rd also inhibits Ca2+ influx. Ginsenoside Rd inhibits CYP2D6, CYP1A2, CYP3A4, and CYP2C9, with IC50s of 58.0±4.5 μM, 78.4±5.3 μM, 81.7±2.6 μM, and 85.1±9.1 μM, respectively.

Ginsenoside Rd is a selective and competitive Ca2+ receptor antagonist and herefore, can suppress calcium influx after cytotoxic injuries. Ginsenoside Rd administration dose-dependently suppresses glutamate-induced DNA laddering and apoptosis through the suppression of glutamate-induced caspase-3 activation and Ca2+ entry. Exposure to ginsenoside Rd can also protect mitochondria against calcium-induced damages through downregulation of reactive oxygen species generation, suppression of mitochondrial membrane potential hyperpolarization, and amelioration of mitochondrial swelling. Ginsenoside Rd is a potent in vitro inhibitor on the chymotrypsin-like activity of 26S proteasome.
Ginsenoside Rd treatment prior to and/or following an ischemic stroke can reduce infarct volume, increase neuronal survival, and enhance cognitive and neurological functions. Ginsenoside Rd administration to a Sprague-Dawley rat has been shown to downregulate ischemic stroke-induced tau protein phosphorylation at Ser199/202 and PHF-1 sites through the downregulation of glycogen synthase kinase-3β and to enhance ischemia-induced cognitive impairment. Ginsenoside Rd administration has also been shown to upregulate the protein kinase B/AKT pathway and, from this, suppress glycogen synthase kinase-3β activity. Ginsenoside Rd administration after tMCAO upregulates glial glutamate transporter-1 (GLT-1) expression and promotes glutamate clearance in rats. Pretreatment with ginsenoside Rd (10 mg/kg) inhibits poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase-1 and consequently downregulates apoptosis-inducing factor translocation and nuclear factor-kappa B p65 subunit nuclear accumulation in Dawley rats suffering from right middle cerebral artery occlusion.

1.Please make sure the liquid is clear before adding the next solvent.
2.Be sure to add the solvent(s) in order. You must ensure that the solution obtained, in the previous addition, is a clear solution before proceeding to add the next solvent. Physical methods such as vortex, ultrasound or hot water bath can be used to aid dissolving.
Calculate the mass, volume or concentration required for a solution. The Selleck molarity calculator is based on the following equation:
Mass (mg) = Concentration (mM) × Volume (mL) × Molecular Weight (g/mol)
*When preparing stock solutions, please always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the via label and SDS / COA (available on product pages).
Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution. The Selleck dilution calculator is based on the following equation:
Concentration (start) x Volume (start) = Concentration (final) x Volume (final)
This equation is commonly abbreviated as: C1V1 = C2V2 ( Input Output )
* When preparing stock solutions always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the vial label and SDS / COA (available online).

Definitions of molecular mass, molecular weight, molar mass and molar weight:
Molecular mass (molecular weight) is the mass of one molecule of a substance and is expressed in the unified atomic mass units (u). (1 u is equal to 1/12 the mass of one atom of carbon-12)
Molar mass (molar weight) is the mass of one mole of a substance and is expressed in g/mol.
