|Other Names||Interleukin-6 receptor subunit beta, IL-6 receptor subunit beta, IL-6R subunit beta, IL-6R-beta, IL-6RB, CDw130, Interleukin-6 signal transducer, Membrane glycoprotein 130, gp130, Oncostatin-M receptor subunit alpha, CD130, IL6ST|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Signal-transducing molecule. The receptor systems for IL6, LIF, OSM, CNTF, IL11, CTF1 and BSF3 can utilize gp130 for initiating signal transmission. Binds to IL6/IL6R (alpha chain) complex, resulting in the formation of high-affinity IL6 binding sites, and transduces the signal. Does not bind IL6. May have a role in embryonic development (By similarity). The type I OSM receptor is capable of transducing OSM-specific signaling events.|
|Cellular Location||Isoform 1: Cell membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Found in all the tissues and cell lines examined. Expression not restricted to IL6 responsive cells|

The protein encoded by this gene is a signal transducershared by many cytokines, including interleukin 6 (IL6), ciliaryneurotrophic factor (CNTF), leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF), andoncostatin M (OSM). This protein functions as a part of thecytokine receptor complex. The activation of this protein isdependent upon the binding of cytokines to their receptors. vIL6, aprotein related to IL6 and encoded by the Kaposi sarcoma-associatedherpesvirus, can bypass the interleukin 6 receptor (IL6R) anddirectly activate this protein. Knockout studies in mice suggestthat this gene plays a critical role in regulating myocyteapoptosis. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encodingdistinct isoforms have been described. A related pseudogene hasbeen identified on chromosome 17.
