ALK2 (human)

ALK2 On ligand binding, forms a receptor complex consisting of two type II and two type I transmembrane serine/threonine kinases. Type II receptors phosphorylate and activate type I receptors which autophosphorylate, then bind and activate SMAD transcriptional regulators. Receptor for activin. May be involved for left-right pattern formation during embryogenesis. Interacts with FKBP1A. Interacts with FCHO1. Expressed in normal parenchymal cells, endothelial cells, fibroblasts and tumor-derived epithelial cells. Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. TKL Ser/Thr protein kinase family. TGFB receptor subfamily. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
