Angiopoietin-like protein 8: an attractive biomarker for the evaluation of subjects with insulin resistance and related disorders
Update time:2017-09-18 13:43:00   【 Font: Large  Medium Small


Insulin resistance is prevalent worldwide and is associated with many metabolic diseases, in particular, type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), obesity, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and metabolic syndrome (MetS). Angiopoietin-like protein 8 (ANGPTL8), a newly-identified secreted protein composing of 198 amino acids, is enriched in the liver of human. Considering its promising potential for β-cell proliferation and therapeutic prospect for diabetes, ANGPTL8 has aroused extensive interests. However, a recent collaborative study confirmed that ANGPTL8 didn’t stimulate dramatic β-cell regeneration. At present, a controversial scientific discussion on whether and how ANGPTL8 regulate insulin resistance has been ongoing. Interestingly, several in vitro and in vivo studies have suggested the complex roles of ANGPTL8 in insulin resistance. Data resulting from cross-sectional and longitudinal researches in human individuals involving the influence of ANGPTL8 on the development of insulin resistance were controversial. We therefore summarize currently clinical literature to exploit whether this exciting hormone could be applied for clinical application as a potential clinical biomarker to predict insulin resistance and related disorders.
