|Function||Component of the BLOC-1 complex, a complex that is required for normal biogenesis of lysosome-related organelles (LRO), such as platelet dense granules and melanosomes (PubMed:15102850, PubMed:17182842). In concert with the AP-3 complex, the BLOC-1 complex is required to target membrane protein cargos into vesicles assembled at cell bodies for delivery into neurites and nerve terminals. The BLOC-1 complex, in association with SNARE proteins, is also proposed to be involved in neurite extension (By similarity). As part of the BORC complex may play a role in lysosomes movement and localization at the cell periphery. Associated with the cytosolic face of lysosomes, the BORC complex may recruit ARL8B and couple lysosomes to microtubule plus-end- directed kinesin motor (PubMed:25898167). May play a role in cell proliferation (PubMed:15381421).|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, microtubule organizing center, centrosome Lysosome membrane. Note=Localizes to the centrosomes in a microtubule-dependent manner|
|Tissue Location||Isoform 1 and isoform 2 are widely expressed. Expressed in various malignant tumor tissues (at protein level)|

BLOC1S2 is a component of the ubiquitously expressed BLOC1multisubunit protein complex. BLOC1 is required for normalbiogenesis of specialized organelles of the endosomal-lysosomalsystem, such as melanosomes and platelet dense granules (Starcevicand Dell'Angelica, 2004 [PubMed 15102850]).
