This gene encodes a protooncogene that acts as a serine/threonine protein kinase. Studies determined the encoded protein functions to prevent apoptosis and to promote cell survival.[provided by RefSeq, Nov 2009].

PIM2 (CHU61B) expression in human paraffin tonsil.
CHU61B stains nuclei and cytoplasm of plasma cells and a high number of cells in the GC. In some cases it is possible to observe nuclear staining of macrophages and some endothelial cells.

Immunoprecipitation techique using CHU61B.
Immunoprecipitation of protein extracts from HEK-PIM1, RPMI8226 and HEK-PIM2 with the anti-PIM2 commercial antibody (clone D1D2) and with anti-PIM2 CHU61B followed by western blotting with anti-PIM2 (D1D2) (1:500) and the CHU61B (neat). In both cases it is possible to observe a specific band of 34 kDa in HEK-PIM2 cell extract confirming antibody specificity. In case of RPMI8226 cell line immunoprecipitated using anti-PIM2 (clone D1D2) it is possible to observe the presence of three bands corresponding to the three PIM2 isoforms (34, 38, and 40 kDa).
