|Synonyms||sst2 receptor, SSTR2, SRIF1, SRIF1A, Smstr2, SRIF-1, SS-2-R, SS2-R, SS2R, somatostatin receptor 2, somatostatin receptor subtype 2, somatostatin receptor type 2, somatotropin release-inhibiting factor receptor, SSTR-2, sst2, Smstr-2|
|Description||Somatostatin acts at many sites to inhibit the release of many hormones and other secretory proteins. The biologic effects of somatostatin are probably mediated by a family of G protein-coupled receptors that are expressed in a tissue-specific manner. SST2 is a member of the superfamily of receptors having seven transmembrane segments and is expressed in highest levels in cerebrum and kidney. Studies showed the involvement of the SST2 receptor in the inhibition of glucagon secretion.|
