Receptor Serine/Threonine Kinases (RSTKs) as Drug Target

Receptor Serine/Threonine Kinases (RSTKs) as Drug Target Background

Receptor Serine/Threonine Kinases (RSTKs), respond to specific cytokines, including the transforming growth factor β (TGFβ) and bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) families. With the recent clinical success of drugs targeting protein kinase activity, drug discovery efforts are focusing on the role of reversible protein phosphorylation in disease states.

Activins signal through a combination of type I and II transmembrane serine/threonine kinase receptors. Activin receptors are shared by multiple transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) ligands such as myostatin, growth and differentiation factor-11 and nodal.
