Part of the Serono Symposia, USA book series (SERONOSYMP)


Somatostatin receptors have been characterized by ligand binding studies using intact cells or cell lines and membrane fractions from various tissues including brain (1,2), anterior pituitary (3–5), adrenal cortex (6,7), and both exocrine (8–10) and endocrine (11) pancreas.
