Bacillus subtilis contains multiple forms of somatostatin-like material.


Extracts of B. subtilis contain somatostatin-like immunoactivity (1-20 pg per g wet weight cells). Two major forms were detected, one with reactivity in both N- and C-terminal immunoassays similar to somatostatin-28 and a second form reactive only in the C-terminal specific immunoassay similar to somatostatin-14. Both forms were active in a bioassay and the… (More)
