Over the last decade, studies have shown that TIPE2 protein is differentially expressed in diverse cells and tissues. The dysregulation of TIPE2 protein can lead to dysregulation of inflammatory responses and immune homeostasis, and change the basic characteristics of cancers. In consideration of the immeasurable values of TIPE2 in diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis of various human diseases, this review will focus on the expression pattern, structure, and regulatory roles of TIPE2 in inflammation, immunity, and cancers.Keywords: TIPE2, inflammation, immune homeostasis, tumor, tumorigenesis, metastasis
