Gene Information

human ... ACVR1(90)

General description

ACVR1 (activin A receptor, type I) gene encodes a BMP (bone morphogenetic protein) type I receptor for the transforming growth factor β (TGFβ) family of growth and differentiation factors. Activin type I receptors are essential for signaling pathways. It is expressed in several tissues including skeletal muscle and chondrocytes.


Activin receptor type-1 precursor recombinant protein epitope signature tag (PrEST)

Biochem/physiol Actions

ACVR1 (activin A receptor, type I) induces alkaline phosphatase activity in C2C12 cells, upregulates BMP4, downregulates BMP antagonists, expands cartilage elements, stimulates ectopic chondrogenesis and joint fusions upon activation. Dysregulation of BMP signaling pathway is observed in cases of Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP), a rare autosomal dominant disorder of skeletal malformations and progressive extraskeletal ossification, associated with defects in ACVR1 gene.

Features and Benefits

Prestige Antibodies® are highly characterized and extensively validated antibodies with the added benefit of all available characterization data for each target being accessible via the Human Protein Atlas portal linked just below the product name at the top of this page. The uniqueness and low cross-reactivity of the Prestige Antibodies® to other proteins are due to a thorough selection of antigen regions, affinity purification, and stringent selection. Prestige antigen controls are available for every corresponding Prestige Antibody and can be found in the linkage section.

Every Prestige Antibody is tested in the following ways:
  • IHC tissue array of 44 normal human tissues and 20 of the most common cancer type tissues.
  • Protein array of 364 human recombinant protein fragments.


Corresponding Antigen APREST71838.

Physical form

Solution in phosphate-buffered saline, pH 7.2, containing 40% glycerol and 0.02% sodium azide

Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP) is a rare autosomal dominant disorder of skeletal malformations and progressive extraskeletal ossification. We mapped FOP to chromosome 2q23-24 by linkage analysis and identified an identical heterozygous mutation (617G --> A; R206H) in the glycine-serine (GS)...
