Target Background

Transmembrane serine/threonine kinase activin type-1 receptor forming an activin receptor complex with activin receptor type-2 (ACVR2A or ACVR2B). Transduces the activin signal from the cell surface to the cytoplasm and is thus regulating a many physiological and pathological processes including neuronal differentiation and neuronal survival, hair follicle development and cycling, FSH production by the pituitary gland, wound healing, extracellular matrix production, immunosuppression and carcinogenesis. Activin is also thought to have a paracrine or autocrine role in follicular development in the ovary. Within the receptor complex, type-2 receptors (ACVR2A and/or ACVR2B) act as a primary activin receptors whereas the type-1 receptors like ACVR1B act as downstream transducers of activin signals. Activin binds to type-2 receptor at the plasma membrane and activates its serine-threonine kinase. The activated receptor type-2 then phosphorylates and activates the type-1 receptor such as ACVR1B. Once activated, the type-1 receptor binds and phosphorylates the SMAD proteins SMAD2 and SMAD3, on serine residues of the C-terminal tail. Soon after their association with the activin receptor and subsequent phosphorylation, SMAD2 and SMAD3 are released into the cytoplasm where they interact with the common partner SMAD4. This SMAD complex translocates into the nucleus where it mediates activin-induced transcription. Inhibitory SMAD7, which is recruited to ACVR1B through FKBP1A, can prevent the association of SMAD2 and SMAD3 with the activin receptor complex, thereby blocking the activin signal. Activin signal transduction is also antagonized by the binding to the receptor of inhibin-B via the IGSF1 inhibin coreceptor. ACVR1B also phosphorylates TDP2.

  2. Results showed that ACVR1B expression is upregulated during latent infection with a miR-UL148D deletion virus. Data indicates miR-UL148D inhibits ACVR1B expression in latently infected cells to limit proinflammatory cytokine secretion. PMID: 27491954

  9. Data suggest that activin A up-regulates SNAIL expression via ALK4/ACVR1B-induced SMAD signaling in trophoblast cells; elevated SNAIL contributes to up-regulation of MMP2 expression which plays key role in promoting trophoblast cell invasion. PMID: 26305619
  10. ACVR1B functions as a positive regulator of monocyte/macrophage differentiation. ACVR1B knockdown promoted THP-1 proliferation by increasing Rb phosphorylation. Down-regulation reduced p-Smad2/3 and C/EBPalpha, inhibiting monocyte/macrophage differentiation. PMID: 25258381

Involvement in disease
ACVRIB is abundantly expressed in systemic sclerosis patient fibroblasts and production of collagen is also induced by activin-A/INHBA. This suggests that the activin/ACRV1B signaling mechanism is involved in systemic sclerosis.
Subcellular Location
Cell membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein.
Protein Families
Protein kinase superfamily, TKL Ser/Thr protein kinase family, TGFB receptor subfamily
Tissue Specificity
Expressed in many tissues, most strongly in kidney, pancreas, brain, lung, and liver.
