Background: Somatostatin R2/SSTR2
Somatostatin Receptor 2 (SSTR2) is one of five 7-transmembrane G-protein-coupled receptors for somatostatins 14 and 28. Human SSTR2 shares 84% aa identity with mouse SSTR2 within the extracellular domains. Isoform B (357 aa) has an alternate C-terminal cytoplasmic region that is 12 aa shorter than that of isoform A (369 aa, reported as 93 kDa). Both are expressed in brain, stomach, intestinal epithelia, pancreatic islets and kidney tubules. Isoform B is also expressed in parotid, thyroid and bronchial glands.
