Somatostatin-like immunoreactive material in the rabbit retina.

Somatostatin-like immunoreactivity was detected by a specific radioimmunoassay in extracts of retinas of Dutch-belted rabbits at a mean concentration of 1.1 +/- 0.1 ng/retina, or 170 +/- 30 pg/mg protein. On both gel permeation chromatography and reversed phase high performance liquid chromatography, the majority of this material was indistinguishable from… CONTINUE READING
