As inferred from the response of the activin receptor to activin, the type II component of the NODAL receptor phosphorylates the type I component in response to NODAL binding. Experiments with human proteins in frog oocytes show NODAL can signal via the CRIPTO:ACVR1B(ALK4):ACVR2 complex (Yeo and Whitman 2001).
