Abstract Stem cell senescence is an important and current hypothesis accounting for organismal aging, especially the hematopoietic stem cell HSC. Ginsenoside Rg1 is the main active pharmaceutical ingredient of ginseng, which is a traditional Chinese medicine. This study explored the protective effect of ginsenoside Rg1 on Sca-1+ hematopoietic stem-progenitor cells HSC-HPCs in a mouse model of d-galactose-induced aging. The mimetic aging mouse model was induced by continuous injection of d-gal for 42 days, and the C57BL-6 mice were respectively treated with ginsenoside Rg1, Vitamin E or normal saline after 7 days of d-gal injection. Compared with those in the d-gal administration alone group, ginsenoside Rg1 protected Sca-1+ HSC-HPCs by decreasing SA-β-Gal and enhancing the colony forming unit-mixture CFU-Mix, and adjusting oxidative stress indices like reactive oxygen species ROS, total anti-oxidant T-AOC, superoxide dismutase SOD, glutathione peroxidase GSH-px and malondialdehyde MDA. In addition, ginsenoside Rg1 decreased β-catenin and c-Myc mRNA expression and enhanced the phosphorylation of GSK-3β. Moreover, ginsenoside Rg1 down-regulated advanced glycation end products AGEs, 4-hydroxynonenal 4-HNE, phospho-histone H2A.X r-H2A.X, 8-OHdG, p16Ink4a, Rb, p21Cip1-Waf1 and p53 in senescent Sca-1+ HSC-HPCs. Our findings indicated that ginsenoside Rg1 can improve the resistance of Sca-1+ HSC-HPCs in a mouse model of d-galactose-induced aging through the suppression of oxidative stress and excessive activation of the Wnt-β-catenin signaling pathway, and reduction of DNA damage response, p16Ink4a-Rb and p53-p21Cip1-Waf1 signaling.
