    Most studies on the role of STAMP2 in metabolism have used adipose tissue. Little knowledge exists concerning the role of STAMP2 in the liver, which is a metabolically central target. We hypothesized that STAMP2 is involved in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) pathogenesis. We examined our hypothesis using human NAFLD patient pathology samples and a high-fat diet (HFD)-induced NAFLD mouse model. The molecular mechanism underlying hepatic STAMP2-mediated lipid imbalance was explored using an oleic acid (OA)-induced NAFLD in vitro model. Noticeably, the expression level of STAMP2 protein was reduced in the livers obtained from NAFLD patients and HFD-induced NAFLD mice. In vivo knockdown of hepatic STAMP2 by siRNA accelerated hepatic steatosis and insulin resistance in mice fed a HFD. Conversely, the delivery of adenoviral STAMP2 (Ad-STAMP2) improved hepatic steatosis in HFD-induced NAFLD mice. The expression of lipogenic or adipogenic factors was increased in both in vitro and in vivo NAFLD models but was reversed by Ad-STAMP2. Adenoviral overexpression of STAMP2 improved insulin resistance in the HFD-induced NAFLD mice. In vivo and in vitro assays demonstrated that STAMP2 modulates insulin sensitivity and glucose metabolism and that STAMP2 counteracts OA-induced insulin resistance by modulating insulin receptor substrate-1 stability. The present study revealed that hepatic STAMP2 plays a pivotal role in preventing HFD-induced NAFLD and that STAMP2 overexpression improves hepatic steatosis and insulin resistance in NAFLD. Our findings indicate that STAMP2 may represent a suitable target for interventions targeting NAFLD. Copyright © 2015 European Association for the Study of the Liver. Published by Elsevier B.V.
