Integral membrane protein 2A
integral membrane protein 2
This gene encodes a type II membrane protein that belongs to the ITM2 family. Studies in mouse suggest that it may be involved in osteo- and chondrogenic differentiation. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2010] (from

The acid β-glucosidase (glucocerbrosidase (GCase)) binding sequence to LIMP-2 (lysosomal integral membrane protein 2), the receptor for intracellular GCase trafficking to the lysosome, has been identified.

To characterize the renin storage vesicles more precisely, the expression and functional relevance of the major lysosomal membrane proteins lysosomal-associated membrane protein 1 (LAMP-1), LAMP-2, and lysosomal integral membrane protein 2 (LIMP-2) were determined in JG cells.

The presence of luminal (cathepsin D) and membrane lysosomal markers [lysosomal-associated membrane protein (LAMP)1, LAMP2, and lysosomal integral membrane protein 2] around the lipid vacuoles facilitated the diagnosis of CESD in fixed paraffin-embedded material.
Pinto et al., Maastricht, Netherlands. In J Exp Med, 2007
A comprehensive screen for novel mechanisms in failing hearts demonstrated that expression of the lysosomal integral membrane protein 2 (LIMP-2) is increased in cardiac hypertrophy and heart failure in both rat and human myocardium.
