Abstract

Activin A receptor, type II-like kinase 1 (ALK1 is a serine-threonine kinase) predominantly expressed on endothelial cells surface. Mutations in its ACVRL1 encoding gene (12q11-14) cause type 2 Hereditary Haemorrhagic Telangiectasia (HHT2), an autosomal dominant multisystem vascular dysplasia. Its involvement in cancer neoangiogenesis has lead to the recent development of novel anti-cancer drugs, which are now in clinical trials.
