Somatostatin Receptors (Somatostatin Receptor) Summary

Description: Cell surface proteins that bind somatostatin and trigger intracellular changes which influence the behavior of cells. Somatostatin is a hypothalamic hormone, a pancreatic hormone, and a central and peripheral neurotransmitter. Activated somatostatin receptors on pituitary cells inhibit the release of growth hormone; those on endocrine and gastrointestinal cells regulate the absorption and utilization of nutrients; and those on neurons mediate somatostatin's role as a neurotransmitter.

Also Known As: Somatostatin Receptor; Receptors, Somatostatin; Receptors, SRIH; SRIH Receptors; Receptor, Somatostatin Show All >>
