An Activin receptor is a receptor which binds activin.

Types include:

These proteins are receptor-type kinases of Ser/Thr type, which have a single transmembrane domain and a specific hydrophilic Cys-rich ligand-binding domain.[1][2][3]

Human proteins containing this domain[edit]

ACVR1; ACVR1B; ACVR1C; ACVR2A; ACVR2B; ACVRL1; BMPR1A; BMPR1B; BMPR2; TGFBR1;
