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 (RPES3529)
Met 1-Thr 134
1. Measured by its binding ability in a functional ELISA. Immobilized human ACVR2B at 10 µg/mL (100 ?l/well) can bind biotinylated mouse INHBA-His, The EC50 of biotinylated mouse INHBA-His is 0.161 µg/mL.2. Measured by its binding ability in a functional ELISA. Immobilized mouse INHBA-his at 10 µg/mL (100 ?l/well) can bind human Follistatin Protein, The EC50 of human Follistatin Protein is 0.39 µg/mL.3. Measured by its ability to neutralize Activin-mediated inhibition on MPC11 cell proliferation. The ED50 for this effect is typically 0.2-0.8 µg/mL in the presence of 10 ng/mL recombinant Activin A.
