Summaries for OSCAR Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for OSCAR Gene

  • Osteoclasts are multinucleated cells that resorb bone and are essential for bone homeostasis. This gene encodes an osteoclast-associated receptor (OSCAR), which is a member of the leukocyte receptor complex protein family that plays critical roles in the regulation of both innate and adaptive immune responses. The encoded protein may play a role in oxidative stress-mediated atherogenesis as well as monocyte adhesion. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2013]

GeneCards Summary for OSCAR Gene

OSCAR (Osteoclast Associated, Immunoglobulin-Like Receptor) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with OSCAR include Decubitus Ulcer and Chronic Ulcer Of Skin. Among its related pathways are Class I MHC mediated antigen processing and presentation and Innate Immune System. An important paralog of this gene is IGSF1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for OSCAR Gene

  • Regulator of osteoclastogenesis which plays an important bone-specific function in osteoclast differentiation.
