Protein Information
Name BECN2 {ECO:0000303|PubMed:23954414, ECO:0000312|HGNC:HGNC:38606}
Function Involved in 2 distinct lysosomal degradation pathways: acts as a regulator of autophagy and as a regulator of G-protein coupled receptors turnover. Regulates degradation in lysosomes of a variety of G-protein coupled receptors via its interaction with GPRASP1/GASP1.
Cellular Location Cytoplasm.
Tissue Location Present in fetal and adult brain (at protein level).

Autophagy, the process of bulk degradation of cellular proteins through an autophagosomic-lysosomal pathway is important for normal growth control and may be defective in tumor cells (1,2). Beclin 2 is a mammalian specific homolog of the autophagy protein Beclin 1 (3). Like Beclin 1, Beclin 2 interacts with Bcl-2 and class III PI3K complex components. However, Beclin 2 functions in an additional lysosomal degradation pathway and is required for ligand-induced endolysosomal degradation of several G protein-coupled receptors (3). Beclin 2 is also required for agonist-induced lysosome-mediated degradation of EGFR in lung cancer cells, suggesting that it may also play a role in regulating other intracellular signaling pathways (4).
