Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits activin binding activity and protein serine/threonine kinase activity. Predicted to contribute to activin-activated receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including activin receptor signaling pathway; hair follicle development; and regulation of gene expression. Predicted to localize to the activin receptor complex; cell surface; and cytosol. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in pancreatic cancer. Orthologous to human ACVR1B (activin A receptor type 1B).
