Somatostatin is an inhibitory regulator with important cellular effects whose actions are mediated through the G protein-coupled somatostatin receptors 1-5 (sst1-5). We have previously described the existence of sst2 in human endometrium, but the expression for other isoforms was unknown. The precise control of cellular proliferation and angiogenesis in the endometrium is not yet fully understood, and we hypothesise that somatostatin may have a role.<...
