DescriptionThe monoclonal antibody ICDCLS recognizes human, mouse, and rat Somatostatin. Somatostatin, also known as growth hormone-inhibiting hormone (GHIH) or somatotrophin release-inhibiting factor (SRIF), is a peptide hormone with two active forms (14 and 28 amino acids) produced by alternative cleavage of a single preproprotein. Somatostatin is secreted by the delta cells of the islet of Langerhans in the pancreas as well as by the hypothalamus and intestine. Somatostatin has a variety of functions, such as regulating the endocrine system and affecting neurotransmission and cell proliferation. Somatostatin also inhibits the release of numerous secondary hormones, such as insulin and glucagon. Somatostatin can be used to identify medium size aspiny neurons in the striatum, cortex, and hippocampus. Expression of somatostatin is present in hyperplasia of the pancreatic islets as well as islet cell tumors such as somatostatinomas.
