Background: Somatostatin R3/SSTR3
Somatostatin Receptor 3 (SSTR3) is one of five 7-transmembrane G-protein-coupled receptors for somatostatins 14 and 28. Human SSTR3 shares 80% aa identity with mouse SSTR3 within the extracellular domains. SSTR3 protein has been detected in anterior pituitary, lymphocytes, thyroid, parathyroid, stomach, small intestine, and pancreatic islets. In neurons, it is located within cilia and is implicated in object recognition memory. It is an inhibitory receptor that transduces the antiproliferative and antisecretive effects of somatostatins in the pituitary.
