Protein Information
Name PACS2
Synonyms KIAA0602, PACS1L
Function Multifunctional sorting protein that controls the endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-mitochondria communication, including the apposition of mitochondria with the ER and ER homeostasis. In addition, in response to apoptic inducer, translocates BIB to mitochondria, which initiates a sequence of events including the formation of mitochondrial truncated BID, the release of cytochrome c, the activation of caspase-3 thereby causing cell death. May also be involved in ion channel trafficking, directing acidic cluster-containing ion channels to distinct subcellular compartments.
Cellular Location Endoplasmic reticulum lumen. Mitochondrion
Tissue Location Broadly expressed, with greatest levels in skeletal muscle followed by heart, brain, pancreas and testis

PACS2 (phosphofurin acidic cluster sorting protein-2), PACS1L, is an 889 amino acid protein that localizes to both the mitochondrion and the lumen of the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and belongs to the PACS family (1,2). It is expressed in a broad range of tissues with highest expression in skeletal muscle, brain, heart, testis and pancreas (2,). PACS2 interacts with Polycystin-2 and BID and functions as a sorting protein that regulates mitochondria-ER communication and is thought to be involved in ion channel trafficking, specifically direct cluster-containing ion channels to distinct subcellular compartments (3-5).
