Polycystin-2 (PC2), a calcium-activated cation TRP channel, is involved in diverse Ca 2+ signaling pathways. Malfunctioning Ca 2+ regulation in PC2 causes autosomal-dominant polycystic kidney disease. Here we report two cryo-EM structures of distinct channel states of full-length human PC2 in complex with lipids and cations. The structures reveal conformational differences in the selectivity filter and in the large exoplasmic domain (TOP domain), which displays differing N-glycosylation. The more open structure has one cation bound below the selectivity filter (single-ion mode, PC2 SI ), whereas multiple cations are bound along the translocation pathway in the second structure (multi-ion mode, PC2 MI ). Ca 2+ binding at the entrance of the selectivity filter suggests Ca 2+ blockage in PC2 MI , and we observed density for the Ca 2+ -sensing C-terminal EF hand in the unblocked PC2 SI state. The states show altered interactions of lipids with the pore loop and TOP domain, thus reflecting the functional diversity of PC2 at different locations, owing to different membrane compositions.
