Somatostatin receptors (sst), somatostatin (SS) and cortistatin (CST) are widely expressed in the various systems in the human and rodent organisms and are "responsible" for maintaining homeostasis, which is essential for survival. Because of their broad expression pattern sst, SS and CST interactions may play regulatory roles in both physiology and pathophysiology in mammalian organisms. SS analogue treatment strategies as well as the use of SS analogues for diagnostic purposes have been… CONTINUE READING
