      DescriptionAnti-ALK7 Antibody
      Background InformationALK7 (ACVR1C activin A receptor, type IC; ACVRLK4) is a transmembrane type IC receptor serine kinase for activin or activin-like ligands. Activins, are dimeric factors that belong to the TGF-superfamily of signaling proteins. Activins signal through the hetrodimeric complex that includes two type I (I and IB) and two type II (II and IIB) receptors. The type I receptors (i.e. ALK7) contains a Ser/Thr kinase domain in its cytoplasmic domain that is essential for signaling, while the type II are receptors are essential for ligand binding (Harrison, 2004 & Gray, 2000). Receptor activation involves ligand binding to the promiscuous type II receptor that is known to bind to many ligands. This leads to the recruitment of ALK7 and the formation of a stable heterodimer that results in the phosphorylation and activation of ALK7.

      Entrez Gene Number
      Entrez Gene SummaryACVR1C is a type I receptor for the TGFB (see MIM 190180) family of signaling molecules. Upon ligand binding, type I receptors phosphorylate cytoplasmic SMAD transcription factors, which then translocate to the nucleus and interact directly with DNA or in complex with other transcription factors (Bondestam et al., 2001 [PubMed 12063393]).[supplied by OMIM]

      UniProt Number
      UniProt SummaryFunction: Serine/threonine protein kinase which forms a receptor complex on ligand binding. The receptor complex consisting of 2 type II and 2 type I transmembrane serine/threonine kinases. Type II receptors phosphorylate and activate type I receptors which autophosphorylate, then bind and activate SMAD transcriptional regulators, SMAD2 and SMAD3. Receptor for activin AB, activin B and NODAL. Plays a role in cell differentiation, growth arrest and apoptosis.
