Expression, pharmacology, and functional role of somatostatin receptor subtypes 1 and 2 in human macrophages.

Abstract

Somatostatin (SRIF)-14 is recognized as an important mediator between the nervous and the immune system, although the functional role of its receptors (sst(1)-sst(5)) is poorly understood in humans. In our study, we demonstrate that human macrophages, differentiated from PBMC-derived monocytes, express sst(1) and sst(2) mRNAs. sst(1) and sst(2) are mostly… (More)
