Dear visitor, this is a machine-translated article. It makes perfect sense in its original language (Czech), and is fully backed by independent scientific literature. The translation, though, is far from perfect and takes patience and imagination, if you decide to read it.

15. ginsenoside Rh2

ginsenoside Rh 2

It is a damaran, protopanaxadiol panaxoside:

ginsenoside Rh2

R1 = -Glc
R2 = -H

  • Gssd. Rh 2 originates for the most part by intestinal microbes from gssd. 20 (S) Rg3, which in turn is produced in the stomach by hydrolysis of ingested gssd Rb 1 ( Christensen2009gcb ).
  • Gssd. Rh 2 restores cellular immunity and NK cell activity after mitomycin damage (Korean research reported in Choi2008bcp ).
  • According to Park1996gri they have gssd. Rh 2 and Rh 1 ability to reduce NO production in macrophages stimulated by lipopolysaccharides (mouse, abdominal cavity macrophages). Gssd. Rh 2 also reduced production of NO in the same macrophages after interferon-γ stimulation.
  • According to Park2003aag has gssd. Rh 2 Effect Against Allergy - inhibited the secretion of β-hexosaminidase stimulated mast cells (rat, leukemic strain RBL-2H3) better than the standard drug the chromoglycate but did not inhibit the activation of hyaluronidase and did not affect the oxygen radicals.
  • Gssd. Rh 2 blocked the binding of AP-1 transcription factor to DNA in lipopolysaccharide-activated or interferon-γ activated mice. Rh 2 blocked NOS2 expression and NO production with IC50 = 17 μM, as well as expression of TNF-α and IL-1β. Rh 2 further enhanced the expression of IL-10 inhibiting inflammation and facilitated the binding of CREB transcription factor to DNA. There was no Rh 2 effect on the binding of NF-κB transcription factor. Gssd. Rg 3 had Rh- 2- like effects, but much weaker. ( Bae2006grr )
  • Ginsenoside Rh2 inhibits NMDA receptors in the hippocampus. ( Lee2006srn )
