The relative levels of somatostatin-14 and somatostatin-28 were determined during both perinatal development and variations in lighting conditions in the chicken retina. During perinatal development of the retina, somatostatin-14 predominated in recently hatched chickens, whereas somatostatin-28 predominated in the retinas of older chickens. In mature chickens, the levels of both somatostatin-14 and somatostatin-28 increased during the light and decreased during the dark. Our results suggest… CONTINUE READING
