The protein encoded by this gene is a signal transducer shared by many cytokines including interleukin 6 (IL6) ciliary neurotrophic factor (CNTF) leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF) and oncostatin M (OSM). This protein functions as a part of the cytokine receptor complex. The activation of this protein is dependent upon the binding of cytokines to their receptors. vIL6 a protein related to IL6 and encoded by the Kaposi sarcoma-associated herpesvirus can bypass the interleukin 6 receptor (IL6R) and directly activate this protein. Knockout studies in mice suggest that this gene plays a critical role in regulating myocyte apoptosis. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been described. A related pseudogene has been identified on chromosome 17. [provided by RefSeq Jul 2010]
