DescriptionOncostatin M (OSM) is a member of a cytokine subfamily that includes IL-6, IL-11, LIF, CNTF, and Cardiotrophin-1. These cytokines have overlapping biological functions and shared receptor components. Mouse OSM was cloned and identified as an immediate early gene induced in various myeloid and lymphoid cell lines by a subset of cytokines including IL-2, IL-3, GM-CSF, and Erythropoietin. The mouse OSM cDNA encodes a 263 amino acid residue precursor protein that shows 48% identity with human OSM. Similar to human OSM, the C-terminal region of mouse OSM contains a highly charged region. Deletion of this C-terminal region appears to be essential for the formation of biologically active mouse OSM. The biological activity of human OSM has been shown to be mediated either by the LIF/OSM receptor complex composed of gp130 and LIF Rα or by a human OSM specific receptor composed of gp130 and OSM Rα. It remains to be determined if the biological activities of mouse OSM can also be mediated by both receptor complexes in mouse cells.
