Using the rat as a model, the present article summarises the spatial, temporal and hormonal regulation of the somatostatin receptor subtypes and their mRNAs in brain and periphery and attempts to provide a molecular basis for somatostatin receptor gene regulation by the structural and functional analyses of their promoters.
