Background: Activin receptor type-1; also known as Activin receptor type I; Activin receptor-like kinase 2; Serine/threonine-protein kinase receptor R1; TGF-B superfamily receptor type I; ACVRLK2 and ACVR1; is a single-pass type I membrane protein. ACVR1 is expressed in normal parenchymal cells; endothelial cells; fibroblasts and tumor-derived epithelial cells. ACVR1 belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. Activins signal through a heteromeric complex of receptor serine kinases which include at least two type I (I and IB) and two type II (II and IIB) receptors. These receptors are all transmembrane proteins; composed of a ligand-binding extracellular domain with cysteine-rich region; a transmembrane domain; and a cytoplasmic domain with predicted serine/threonine specificity. Type I receptors are essential for signaling; and type II receptors are required for binding ligands and for expression of type I receptors. Type I and II receptors form a stable complex after ligand binding; resulting in phosphorylation of type I receptors by type II receptors. ACVR1 signals a particular transcriptional response in concert with activin type II receptors.
