Name :
Human OSM protein, recombinant

Description :
Oncostatin M (OSM) is a member of a cytokine family that includes leukemia-inhibitory factor (LIF), granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF), and interleukin 6 (IL-6). The human OSM gene encodes a 252-aa pre-pro-OSM polypeptide with a 25-aa signal peptide and a C-terminal domain that are proteolytically processed to generate the 196-aa mature & active form. OSM is a pleiotropic cytokine that signals through cell surface type I and typ II receptors, which share the similarity to gp130, a signal transducing component of the IL-6, LIF and ciliary neurotrophic factor (CNTF) receptor complexes. OSM plays roles in liver development, hematopoeisis, inflammation, bone formation and destruction, and CNS development. OSM was originally identified by its ability to inhibit the growth of cells from melanoma and other solid tumors. It mediates cytokine production, including IL-6, G-CSF and GM-CSF from endothelial cells. Like LIF, IL-6 and G-CSF, OSM has the ability to inhibit the proliferation of murine M1 myeloid leukemic cells and induce their differentiation into macrophage-like cells. OSM is found primarily in activated T-lymphocyte and monocyte contributing to inflammation. OSM also has growth stimulatory activities on normal fibroblasts, sarcoma cells, and human erythroleukemia cell line, TF-1. Both OSM and LIF are expressed in the uterus around the time of implantation and considered as important factors for the development of early embryos. As a closely related cytokine to LIF, OSM mimics the activity of LIF in the maintenance of embryonic stem (ES) cell pluripotency and germline competency.
