Identifiers
SSTR1 Gene
RNA expression pattern

Somatostatin receptor type 1 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the SSTR1 gene.[1][2]

Somatostatin acts at many sites to inhibit the release of many hormones and other secretory proteins. The biological effects of somatostatin are probably mediated by a family of G protein-coupled receptors that are expressed in a tissue-specific manner. The encoded protein is a member of the superfamily of somatostatin receptors having seven transmembrane segments, and is expressed in highest levels in jejunum and stomach.[2]
