Activin A receptor type IB (ACVR1B) is a gene that encodes a signaling protein that functions in growth and differentiation. Missense mutations, synonymous mutations, nonsense mutations, and frameshift deletions are observed in cancers such as colon cancer, stomach cancer, and endometrial cancer.

ACVR1B is altered in 1.59% of all cancers with colorectal adenocarcinoma, non-small cell lung carcinoma, melanoma, bladder carcinoma, and breast carcinoma having the greatest prevalence of alterations [3].
