An essential role for STAT6-STAT1 protein signaling in promoting macrophage cell-cell fusion.

Abstract

Macrophage lineage cells such as osteoclasts and foreign body giant cells (FBGCs) form multinuclear cells by cell-cell fusion of mononuclear cells. Recently, we reported that two seven-transmembrane molecules, osteoclast stimulatory transmembrane protein (OC-STAMP) and dendritic cell-specific transmembrane protein (DC-STAMP), were essential for osteoclast… (More)
