Oncostatin-M specific receptor subunit beta also known as the oncostatin M receptor is a protein that in humans is encoded by the OSMR gene.[1][2]

OSMR is a member of the type I cytokine receptor family. This protein heterodimerizes with interleukin 6 signal transducer to form the type II oncostatin M receptor and with interleukin 31 receptor A to form the interleukin 31 receptor, and thus transduces oncostatin M and interleukin 31 induced signaling events.[1]

Clinical significance

The oncostatin M receptor is associated with primary cutaneous amyloidosis.[3]
