PACSIN 2, a 486 AA phosphoprotein is a novel member of the PACSIN family of cytoplasmic adapter proteins. It is an isoform of PACSIN with a CDC15 N-terminal domain, a C-terminal SH3 domain, 3 conserved regions specific to the PACSIN family, and 3 asn-pro-phe (NPF) motifs, which potentially bind to EH domains. This protein is known to display a ubiquitous expression pattern with the highest levels of expression in brain. Reports suggest that PACSIN 2 participates in the organization of the actin cytoskeleton, the regulation of vesicular traffic. It also participates in endocytic internalization and endocytic receptor recycling.
