Signal-transducing adaptor protein-2 (STAP-2) is a recently identified adaptor protein as a c-Fms/M-CSF receptor-interacting protein and constitutively expressed in macrophages. In our previous study, we examined the role of STAP-2 in the c-Fms/M-CSF receptor signaling using a murine macrophage tumor cells line, Raw264.7. Overexpression of STAP-2 in Raw264.7 cells markedly suppressed M-CSF-induced activation of extracellular signal regulated kinase and Akt. In addition, Raw264.7 overexpressing STAP-2 affected cell migration in wound-healing process. These results suggest that STAP-2 deficiency influences endogenous c-Fms/M-CSF receptor signaling. Here we show that loss of STAP-2 expression in knockout mouse macrophages results in marked enhancement of the c-Fms/M-CSF receptor signaling and wound-healing process. We therefore propose that STAP-2 acts as an endogenous regulator in normal macrophages functions.
