  • Function
    Receptor for somatostatins-14 and -28. This receptor is coupled via pertussis toxin sensitive G proteins to inhibition of adenylyl cyclase. In addition it stimulates phosphotyrosine phosphatase and PLC via pertussis toxin insensitive as well as sensitive G proteins. In RIN-5F cells, this receptor inhibits calcium entry by suppressing voltage dependent calcium-channels.
  • Tissue specificity
    Cerebrum and kidney. In lesser amounts in jejunum, colon and liver.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family.
  • Cellular localization
    Cell membrane.

Thank you for contacting us.

A quick search of SSTR2 does show low expression in tissues of the CNS with the exception of granular and molecular layer cells in the cerebellum. However, if this protein is present in spinal tissue and you are using it in mouse, rat or humans tissues this antibody should recognize the protein.

I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.
