CHMP2B is a component of the ESCRT III (endosomal sorting required for transport complex III) complex (1, 2). The ESCRT system is composed of the ESCRT-0, -I, -II, and -III complexes, which function sequentially to direct the transport of ubiquitinated transmembrane proteins into the intralumenal vesicles (ILVs), which will eventually mature into multivesicular bodies (MVBs). CHMP2B is a homolog of yeast Vps2, which functions in the ESCRT-II complex to change the initial spiral-structure of snf7 into membrane-sculpting helices for the final pinch off process (3). CHMP2B probably functions similarly in mammalian cells. Research studies show that manipulation of the ESCRT-III complex leads to accumulation of CHMP2B at the plasma membrane and overexpressed CHMP2B polymerizes into a tight helical structure that deforms the shape of associated plasma membrane (4).

Research studies have shown that mutation of CHMP2B is associated with frontotemporal dementia, (5, 6). Studies have further shown that the dysfunction of mutant CHMP2B expression may disrupts the normal endo-autophagosome and endo-lysosome pathways and lead to neurodegenerative diseases (6-9).
