The in vivo metabolism of somatostatin 28: possible relationship between diminished metabolism and enhanced biological action.


We have compared the metabolism of infused somatostatin 14 (SS14) and somatostatin 28 (SS 28) in anesthetized dogs. After iv infusion of either peptide, plasma SS-like immunoreactivity (SLI) coeluted from Bio-Gel P10 columns with the corresponding synthetic peptide marker. The hepatic extraction, renal extraction, MCR, and plasma half-life of plasma SLI and… (More)
