Characterisation of immunoreactive somatostatin in human fetal hypothalamic tissue.


Levels of immunoreactive somatostatin (IRS) were measured in extracts of hypothalamic tissue from human fetuses of 12-26 weeks gestation. The IRS contents (0.7-22.5 ng) and concentrations (2.7-118.0 pg/mg wet weight tissue) both increased slightly with gestation. Sephadex G-50 chromatography of 11 extracts showed up to four peaks of IRS, one co-eluting with… (More)
