FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] 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]
PHENOTYPE: While most mice homozygous for targeted mutations that inactivate this gene appear normal, a few display skeletal and facial abnormalities. As adults, follicle-stimulating hormone is suppressed, affecting reproduction. [provided by MGI curators]
