CAS#: 80930-74-1

Description: Zingibroside R1 is a triterpene saponin and an active metabolite of ginsenoside Ro that has been found in P. japonicus. It is cytotoxic to B16/F10 murine melanoma cells (IC50 = 24.52 µg/ml) and inhibits tube formation by human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) when used at a concentration of 40 µg/ml. Zingibroside R1 (25 mg/kg) reduces tumor growth in a B16/F10 murine melanoma model.
