Compound class: Synthetic organic
Comment: Rosiptor (AQX-1125) is an investigational allosteric activator of the SH2 domain-containing inositol 5'-phosphatase 1, SHIP1 (HGNC gene symbol INPP5D) . SHIP1 is a negative regulatory phosphatase in the PI3K pathway, a signalling pathway that plays a central role in cellular activation, proliferation, and survival, and which is strongly implicated in inflammatory disorders and cancer. Agonists that activate SHIP1 are being actively developed (as alternatives to direct PI3K inhibitors) for their potential anti-inflammatory action. AQX-1125 is claimed in patent WO2014158654, where it appears to be referred to as compound 9 (without the acetate) .
