||Human ACVR2A (NP_001607.1, 162 a.a. - 513 a.a.) partial recombinant protein with GST tag expressed in baculovirus infected Sf21 cells.
||This gene encodes a receptor that mediates the functions of activins, which are members of the transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta) superfamily involved in diverse biological processes. The encoded protein is a transmembrane serine-threonine kinase receptor which mediates signaling by forming heterodimeric complexes with various combinations of type I and type II receptors and ligands in a cell-specific manner. The encoded type II receptor is primarily involved in ligand-binding and includes an extracellular ligand-binding domain, a transmembrane domain and a cytoplasmic serine-threonine kinase domain. This gene may be associated with susceptibility to preeclampsia, a pregnancy-related disease which can result in maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants of this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jun 2013]
||The activity was determined by ELISA. The enzyme was incubated with biotinylated substrate protein, and after stopping kinase reaction by EDTA, the reaction solution was transferred into streptavidin- coated plate. Phosphorylation was detected by anti-phospho antibody and HRP-labeled anti-rabbit IgG. Substrate: ALK4 inactive mutant. ATP: 100 uM.
||95 % by SDS-PAGE/CBB staining
||Store at -80 centigrade. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing.
||In 50 mM Tris-HCl, 150 mM NaCl, pH 7.5 (0.1% CHAPS, 1 mM DTT, 10% glycerol)
