On ligand binding, forms a receptor complex consisting of two type II and two type I transmembrane serine/threonine kinases. Type II receptors phosphorylate and activate type I receptors which autophosphorylate, then bind and activate SMAD transcriptional regulators. Receptor for anti-Muellerian hormone.

Defects in AMHR2 are the cause of persistent Muellerian duct syndrome type 2 (PMDS2) [MIM:261550]. PMDS2 is a form of male pseudohermaphroditism characterized by a failure of Muellerian duct regression in otherwise normal males.
Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. TKL Ser/Thr protein kinase family. TGFB receptor subfamily. Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
