Somatostatin in Gastrointestinal Function: Intestinal Absorption and Secretion

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


Somatostatin, a 14-amino acid peptide with a growth hormone release inhibition property, was initially isolated from sheep hypothalami (1). Later, the peptide was isolated or detected in many organ systems of all mammalians as well as lower animals.
