Oncostatin M Proteins

OSM (Oncostatin M) is a secreted cytokine involved in homeostasis and most chronic illnesses. OSM, a member of the IL-6 (gp130) family of proteins, inhibits the proliferation of a number of tumor cell lines and plays a significant role in hematopoiesis, mesenchymal stem cell differentiation, liver regeneration, heart remodeling, nociception, inflammation and metabolism. Of all IL-6-type cytokines studied so far, OSM displays the broadest signaling profile. LIF and OSM proteins activate the JAK/STAT pathway, the MAPK protein kinases ERK1 and ERK2, the stress-activated protein kinases p38 and c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK), the phosphatidylinositol-3-kinase (PI3K) AKT pathway and protein kinase C delta (PRKCD). In addition, OSM exhibits many other effects by regulating the production of other cytokines including IL-6, G-CSF and GM-CSF in endothelial cells. OSM may be a tumor promoter that will provide a potential target for antiangiogenic therapy.

Kingfisher Biotech's current portfolio of Oncostatin products, includes bovine and canine recombinant proteins with more in the development queue.

Kingfisher Biotech, Inc. is committed to accelerating basic veterinary research and human disease research done in animal models by developing and commercializing research reagents specific for a variety of species, including bovine, canine, caprine, chicken, dolphin, equine, feline, guinea pig, hamster, human, mouse, ovine, rabbit, rat, swine, and turkey. We will continue to add species as our customer request specific reagents for their research. Currently, we offer over 1200 recombinant proteins, polyclonal antibodies, monoclonal antibodies and ELISA kits for animal health and animal model research. Our products are primarily cytokines, chemokines, interferons, and growth factors. Our product development queue is filled mainly by customer requests. If there is a product that you are looking for and can't find, please send us an email.
