Tanshinone I prevents atorvastatin-induced cerebral hemorrhage in zebrafish and stabilizes endothelial cell-cell adhesion by inhibiting VE-cadherin internalization and actin-myosin contractility. Pharmacol Res. 2018;128:389-398 pubmed publisher
    ..These findings identified Tan I as an endothelial stabilizing agent and suggested Tan I as a potential treatment for vascular leakage in hemorrhagic stroke. ..
