ACVR2A and ACVR2B are two activin type II receptors. ACVR2B is integral to the activin and myostatin signaling pathway. Ligands such as activin and myostatin bind to ACVR2A and ACVR2B. Myostatin, a negative regulator of skeletal muscle growth, is regarded as a potential therapeutic target and binds to ACVR2B effectively, and to a lesser extent, to ACVR2A. The structure of human ACVR2B kinase domain in complex with adenine establishes the conserved bilobal architecture consistent with all other catalytic kinase domains. Haplotype structure at the ACVR2B and follistatin loci may contribute to interindividual variation in skeletal muscle mass and strength. Defects in ACVR2B are a cause of left-right axis malformations.
Mouse ACVR2B Recombinant Protein (RPES4202)
Met 1-Thr 134
1. Measured by its ability to bind biotinylated Human INHBA-his in functional ELISA.2. Measured by its ability to bind biotinylated mouse INHBA-his in functional ELISA.3. Measured by its ability to neutralize Activin-mediated inhibition on MPC11 cell proliferation. The ED50 for this effect is typically 10-50 ng/mL in the presence of 10 ng/mL recombinant Activin A.
<1.0 EU per µg of the protein as determined by the LAL method.
A DNA sequence encoding the extracellular domain (Met 1-Thr 134) of mouse ACVR2B (NP_031423.1) precursor was fused with the Fc region of human IgG1 at the C-terminus.
