Human OSM/Oncostatin M ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Human OSM/Oncostatin M ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of human OSM in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA).
OSM(Oncostatin M) is a protein that in humans is encoded by the OSM gene. OSM is a pleiotropic cytokine that belongs to the interleukin 6 group of cytokines. The OSM gene is mapped on 22q12.2. Of these cytokines it most closely resembles leukemia inhibitory factor(LIF) in both structure and function. Treatment with recombinant OSM leads to the inhibition of proliferation and changes in cellular morphology of a number of tumor cell lines derived from a wide variety of tissue types. OSM signals through cell surface receptors that contain the protein gp130. The type I receptor is composed of gp130 and LIFR, the type II receptor is composed of gp130 and OSMR.
