    • Function

      Probable core component of the endosomal sorting required for transport complex III (ESCRT-III) which is involved in multivesicular bodies (MVBs) formation and sorting of endosomal cargo proteins into MVBs. MVBs contain intraluminal vesicles (ILVs) that are generated by invagination and scission from the limiting membrane of the endosome and mostly are delivered to lysosomes enabling degradation of membrane proteins, such as stimulated growth factor receptors, lysosomal enzymes and lipids. The MVB pathway appears to require the sequential function of ESCRT-O, -I,-II and -III complexes. ESCRT-III proteins mostly dissociate from the invaginating membrane before the ILV is released. The ESCRT machinery also functions in topologically equivalent membrane fission events, such as the terminal stages of cytokinesis and the budding of enveloped viruses (HIV-1 and other lentiviruses). ESCRT-III proteins are believed to mediate the necessary vesicle extrusion and/or membrane fission activities, possibly in conjunction with the AAA ATPase VPS4.
    • Tissue specificity

      Widely expressed. Expressed in brain, heart, skeletal muscle, spleen, kidney, liver, small intestine, pancreas, lung, placenta and leukocytes. In brain, it is expressed in cerebellum, cerebral cortex, medulla, spinal chord, occipital lobe, frontal lobe, temporal lobe and putamen.
    • Involvement in disease

      Defects in CHMP2B are the cause of frontotemporal dementia, chromosome 3-linked (FTD3) [MIM:600795]. FTD3 is characterized by an onset of dementia in the late 50's initially characterized by behavioral and personality changes including apathy, restlessness, disinhibition and hyperorality, progressing to stereotyped behaviors, non-fluent aphasia, mutism and dystonia, with a marked lack of insight. The brains of individuals with FTD3 have no distinctive neuropathological features. They show global cortical and central atrophy, but no beta-amyloid deposits.
    • Sequence similarities

      Belongs to the SNF7 family.
    • Domain

      The acidic C-terminus and the basic N-termminus are thought to render the protein in a closed, soluble and inactive conformation through an autoinhibitory intramolecular interaction. The open and active conformation, which enables membrane binding and oligomerization, is achieved by interaction with other cellular binding partners, probably including other ESCRT components.
    • Cellular localization

      Cytoplasm > cytosol. Late endosome membrane.

      ab157208 was shown to specifically react with CHMP2B in wild-type A549 cells as signal was lost in CHMP2B knockout cells. Wild-type and CHMP2B knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. The membrane was blocked with 3% Milk. Ab157208 and ab130007 (Mouse anti Vinculin loading control) were incubated overnight at 4°C at 1/1000 dilution and 1/1000 dilution respectively. Blots were developed with Goat anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (IRDye® 800CW) preabsorbed ab216773 and Goat anti-Mouse IgG H&L (IRDye® 680RD) preabsorbed ab216776 secondary antibodies at 1/20000 dilution for 1 hour at room temperature before imaging.
