The biology and physiology of somatostatin receptors

, : The biology and physiology of somatostatin receptors. Expert Opinion on Therapeutic Targets 5(5): 613-623

The biology and therapeutic application of somatostatin and its receptors are reviewed. The focus is on recent literature and patents, especially with regard to the specific function of each somatostatin receptor subtype. Detailed mechanisms mediating the effects of somatostatin and its analogues remain to be elucidated. Nevertheless, progress is being made towards a clear picture of the cellular signalling and physiological changes regulated by somatostatin and its receptors.
