Somatostatin receptor 2 (SST2)

Target Class
Official Symbol
Accession Number
Alias Names
SRIF-1; SS2R; somatostatin receptor 2; somatostatin receptor type 2
Somatostatin acts at many sites to inhibit the release of many hormones and other secretory proteins. The biologic effects of somatostatin are probably mediated by a family of G protein-coupled receptors that are expressed in a tissue-specific manner. SSTR2 is a member of the superfamily of receptors having seven transmembrane segments and is expressed in highest levels in cerebrum and kidney. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
