The smaller N-terminal lobes contain a five-stranded antiparallel b sheet and a single a helix (aC) (Fig. 2). The larger C-terminal lobe is mostly a helical and contains the activation loop involved in polypeptide substrate binding. N- and C-terminal lobes are connected by the so-called hinge sequence, which partially defines the binding site for ATP and ATP-competitive kinase inhibitors (Fig. 3A). The catalytic domain of the ActRIIB exhibits strong overall sequence similarity with TbRI and ActRIA (39% and 38% identity, respectively).
