Using RT-PCR and western blotting to interrogate the consequences of oncostatin M and IL-6 stimulation in osteosarcoma cells, the researchers found that the oncostatin receptor is expressed by all human osteosarcoma cells lines, and that treatment of the cell lines with the oncostatin "induced phosphorylation of STAT3, Src, and JAK2.
