GeneCards Summary for OCSTAMP Gene
OCSTAMP (Osteoclast Stimulatory Transmembrane Protein) is a Protein Coding gene.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for OCSTAMP Gene
Probable cell surface receptor that plays a role in cellular fusion and cell differentiation. Cooperates with DCSTAMP in modulating cell-cell fusion in both osteoclasts and foreign body giant cells (FBGCs). Involved in osteoclast bone resorption. Promotes osteoclast differentiation and may play a role in the multinucleated osteoclast maturation (By similarity).
