    ..Therefore, PDGF-B-PDGFR? signaling plays a significant role in the development of adipose tissue neovascularization and appears to be a fundamental target for the prevention of obesity and type 2 diabetes. ..

AS1949490, an inhibitor of 5'-lipid phosphatase SHIP2, promotes protein kinase C-dependent stabilization of brain-derived neurotrophic factor mRNA in cultured cortical neurons. Eur J Pharmacol. 2019;851:69-79 pubmed publisher
    ..Therefore, inhibition of SHIP2 appears to be valuable therapeutic strategy against neurological disorders associated with insufficient BDNF functions. ..
