Summaries for OSMR Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for OSMR Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the type I cytokine receptor family. The encoded 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. Mutations in this gene have been associated with familial primary localized cutaneous amyloidosis. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.

GeneCards Summary for OSMR Gene

OSMR (Oncostatin M Receptor) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with OSMR include amyloidosis, primary localized cutaneous, 1 and primary cutaneous amyloidosis. Among its related pathways are PI3K-Akt signaling pathway and Akt Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include growth factor binding and oncostatin-M receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is CSF3R.

Disorders for OSMR Gene

(1) OMIM Diseases for OSMR Gene (601743)


  • Amyloidosis, primary localized cutaneous, 1 (PLCA1) [MIM:105250]: A primary amyloidosis characterized by localized cutaneous amyloid deposition. This condition usually presents with itching (especially on the lower legs) and visible changes of skin hyperpigmentation and thickening that may be exacerbated by chronic scratching and rubbing. Primary localized cutaneous amyloidosis is often divided into macular and lichen subtypes although many affected individuals often show both variants coexisting. Lichen amyloidosis characteristically presents as a pruritic eruption of grouped hyperkeratotic papules with a predilection for the shins, calves, ankles and dorsa of feet and thighs. Papules may coalesce to form hyperkeratotic plaques that can resemble lichen planus, lichen simplex or nodular prurigo. Macular amyloidosis is characterized by small pigmented macules that may merge to produce macular hyperpigmentation, sometimes with a reticulate or rippled pattern. In macular and lichen amyloidosis, amyloid is deposited in the papillary dermis in association with grouped colloid bodies, thought to represent degenerate basal keratinocytes. The amyloid deposits probably reflect a combination of degenerate keratin filaments, serum amyloid P component, and deposition of immunoglobulins. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:18179886, ECO:0000269 PubMed:19690585}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
