|Precautions||PACS2 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|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).
