  • With the exception of the Agnatha (lampreys and hagfishes), somatostatin-14 is the predominant molecular form of somatostatin in the pancreas of species from all classes of vertebrates yet studied. The pancreas of the holostean fish, Amia calva (bowfin; order Amiiformes) contained somatostatin-like immunoreactivity that was resolved by reversed phase HPLC in two components. The primary structure of the more abundant peptide (somatostatin-26) was established as: Ser-Ala-Asn-Pro-Ala5-Leu-Ala-Pro… CONTINUE READING
