  • 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.
