BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Hepatic ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury, a common clinical problem that occurs during liver surgical procedures, causes a large proportion of early graft failure and organ rejection cases. The identification of key regulators of hepatic I/R injury may provide potential strategies to clinically improve the prognosis of liver surgery. Here, we aimed to identify the role of tumor necrosis factor alpha-induced protein 3-interacting protein 3 (TNIP3) in hepatic I/R injury and further reveal its immanent mechanisms. APPROACH AND RESULTS: In the present study, we found that hepatocyte TNIP3 was markedly up-regulated in livers of both persons and mice subjected to I/R surgery. Hepatocyte-specific Tnip3 overexpression effectively attenuated I/R-induced liver necrosis and inflammation, but improved cell proliferation in mice, whereas TNIP3 ablation largely aggravated liver injury. This inhibitory effect of TNIP3 on hepatic I/R injury was found to be dependent on significant activation of the Hippo-YAP signaling pathway. Mechanistically, TNIP3 was found to directly interact with large tumor suppressor 2 (LATS2) and promote neuronal precursor cell-expressed developmentally down-regulated 4-mediated LATS2 ubiquitination, leading to decreased Yes-associated protein (YAP) phosphorylation at serine 112 and the activated transcription of factors downstream of YAP. Notably, adeno-associated virus delivered TNIP3 expression in the liver substantially blocked I/R injury in mice. CONCLUSIONS: TNIP3 is a regulator of hepatic I/R injury that alleviates cell death and inflammation by assisting ubiquitination and degradation of LATS2 and the resultant YAP activation.TNIP3 represents a promising therapeutic target for hepatic I/R injury to improve the prognosis of liver surgery.
