Expression of somatostatin subtype 1 receptor in the rabbit retina.


PURPOSE To detect mRNAs for somatostatin (somatotropin release-inhibiting factor [SRIF]) receptor subtypes 1 to 5 (sst(1) through sst(5)) in rabbit retinas by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and to investigate the distribution of sst(1) by single- and double-label immunocytochemistry. METHODS Semiquantitative RT-PCR using sst… (More)
