Integral Membrane Protein 2B (ITM2B) is expressed in the Golgi and on the cell surface. ITM2B forms homodimer through disulfide-linked interaction with SPPL2A, SPPL2B and APP. ITM2B is expressed in brain and the other tissues. Defects in ITM2B cause cerebral amyloid angiopathy ITM2B-related type 1(CAA-ITM2B1) and amyloid angiopathy ITM2B-related type 2(CAA-ITM2B2). CAA-ITM2B1 is characterized by amyloid deposition in the walls of cerebral blood vessels and neurodegeneration in the central nervous system. CAA-ITM2B2 characterized by amyloid deposition in the walls of the blood vessels of the cerebrum, choroid plexus, cerebellum, spinal cord and retina.
