|Other Names||Somatostatin, Growth hormone release-inhibiting factor, Somatostatin-28, Somatostatin-14, SST|
|Target/Specificity||Rabbit anti-Human Somatostatin antibody recognizes human somatostatin, a polypeptide hormone produced by the hypothalamus, D cells in the pancreas and by nerves within the intestinal wall. Somatostatin exists in 2 forms - a 28 amino acid pro-hormone and a mature 14 amino acid form. In the pancreas, duodenum and gastric antrum the 14 amino acid form is predominate, whilst the pro-hormone is more common in other regions of the gastrointestinal tract.|
