Gene: ACVR2B (activin A receptor type 2B) Homo sapiens
Symbol: ACVR2B
Name: activin A receptor type 2B
Description: Exhibits growth factor binding activity and protein serine/threonine kinase activity. Predicted to contribute to activin receptor activity, type II. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of activin receptor signaling pathway; positive regulation of ossification; and transmembrane receptor protein serine/threonine kinase signaling pathway. Localizes to the cytoplasm and receptor complex. Implicated in visceral heterotaxy.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: activin A receptor type IIB; activin A receptor, type IIB; activin receptor type-2B; ActR-IIB; ACTRIIB; HTX4; MGC116908
