Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits activin binding activity; growth factor binding activity; and kinase activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; circulatory system development; and embryonic morphogenesis. Predicted to localize to the activin receptor complex and cytoplasm. Used to study right atrial isomerism and visceral heterotaxy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in visceral heterotaxy. Orthologous to human ACVR2B (activin A receptor type 2B).
