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. As inferred from mouse and frog (Xenopus) NODAL can signal via the ACVR1C (ALK7) type I activin receptor (Reissman et al. 2001) though this may be dispensable for development in mouse (Jornvall et al. 2004).
