ACVR2A and ACVR2B are two activin type II receptors. ACVR2A has been shown to interact with INHBA, SYNJ2BP and ACVR1B. The bovine ACVR2A gene encodes a protein of 513 amino acids which is highly homologous (approximately 98% identity) to the rat, mouse, and human ACVR2A proteins. Inactivation of ACVR2A is a common event in prostate cancer cells suggesting it may play an important role in the development of prostate cancer. The ACVR2A gene is a putative tumor suppressor gene that is frequently mutated in microsatellite-unstable colon cancers (MSI-H colon cancers). Frameshift mutation of ACVR2A may contribute to MSI-H colon tumorigenesis via disruption of alternate TGF-beta effector pathways.
Mouse Activin RIIA/ACVR2A Recombinant Protein (RPES0821)
Met 1-Pro 134
Measured by its ability to neutralize Activin-mediated inhibition on MPC11 cell proliferation.The ED50 for this effect is typically 0.6-3 µg/mL in the presence of 10 ng/ml Recombinant Human Activin A.
<1.0 EU per µg of the protein as determined by the LAL method.
A DNA sequence encoding the extracellular domain of mouse ACVR2A (NP_031422.3) (Met 1-Pro 134) was expressed, with a C-terminal polyhistidine tag.
