Ginsenoside RK3 Prevents Hypoxia-Reoxygenation Induced Apoptosis in H9c2 Cardiomyocytes via AKT and MAPK Pathway.[Pubmed: 23935671
Cardiac hypertrophy is a thickening of the heart muscle that is associated with cardiovascular diseases such as hypertension and myocardial infarction. It occurs initially as an adaptive process against increased workloads and often leads to sudden arrhythmic deaths. Studies suggest that the lethal arrhythmia is attributed to hypertrophy-induced destabilization of cardiac electrical activity, especially the prolongation of the action potential. The reduced activity of Ito is demonstrated to be responsible for the ionic mechanism of prolonged action potential duration and arrhythmogeneity. Isosteviol (STV), a derivative of stevioside, plays a protective role in a variety of stress-induced cardiac diseases.
METHODS AND RESULTS:
Here we report effects of STV on rat ISO-induced hypertrophic cardiomyocytes. STV alleviated ISO-induced hypertrophy of cardiomyocytes by decreasing cell area of hypertrophied cardiomyocytes. STV application prevented the prolongation of action potential which was prominent in hypertrophied cells.
The decrease and increase of current densities for Ito and ICaL observed in hypertrophied myocytes were both prevented by STV application. In addition, the results of qRT-PCR suggested that the changes of electrophysiological activity of Ito and ICaL are correlated to the alterations of the mRNA transcription level.

Anti-complementary ginsenosides isolated from processed ginseng.[Pubmed: 21628891
METHODS AND RESULTS:
As part of an ongoing search for immunomodulatory components aimed at the anti-complementary effect, ginsenosides isolated from processed ginseng were found to have inhibitory activity on complement activation through classical pathways. Activity-guided fractionation was used to isolate four ginsenosides, namely ginsenoside Rg₆, F₄, Rk₃, and Rh₄. Ginsenoside Rk₃ and Rh₄ had a 3 fold higher inhibition activity than rosmarinic acid which was used as a positive control while ginsenoside Rg₆ and F₄ showed only mild effects similar to that of the positive control.
The results suggest that the activity of the corresponding ginsenosides may be increased by the glycosyl moiety at the C₆ position rather than the double bond conformation at C₂₀, and ginsenoside Rk₃ and Rh₄ could have a role in treating inflammatory diseases.
