Somatostatin receptor 2

SSTR2, somatostatin receptor 2, somatostatin receptor type 2, somatostatin receptor subtype 2
Somatostatin acts at many sites to inhibit the release of many hormones and other secretory proteins. The biologic effects of somatostatin are probably mediated by a family of G protein-coupled receptors that are expressed in a tissue-specific manner. SSTR2 is a member of the superfamily of receptors having seven transmembrane segments and is expressed in highest levels in cerebrum and kidney. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

de Jong et al., Bronkhorstspruit, South Africa. In J Nucl Med, Nov 2015
METHODS: We analyzed radiotracer uptake (both membrane-bound and internalized fractions) and the produced DNA double strand breaks, by determining the number of p53 binding protein 1 (53BP1) foci, after incubating SSTR2 positive cells with (177)Lu-DTPA, (177)Lu-DOTA-octreotate or (177)Lu-DOTA-JR11.
The role of brain somatostatin receptor 2 in the regulation of feeding and drinking behavior.
Taché et al., Berlin, Germany. In Horm Behav, Jul 2015
Interestingly, in contrast to the predominantly inhibitory actions of peripheral somatostatin, the activation of brain sst2 signaling by intracerebroventricular injection of stable somatostatin agonists potently stimulates food intake and independently, drinking behavior in rodents.
Expression of somatostatin receptors (SSTR1-SSTR5) in meningiomas and its clinicopathological significance.

Investigational drugs targeting somatostatin receptors for treatment of acromegaly and neuroendocrine tumors.
Berruti et al., Brescia, Italy. In Expert Opin Investig Drugs, 2014
The strength of these drugs has been their specificity for somatostatin receptor subtype 2. However, this peculiarity may become a weakness in some patients with tumors harboring somatostatin receptors different from the subtype 2. Another clinically relevant aspect related to the use of octreotide LAR and lanreotide ATG is the burden of injectable drug regimen that may adversely impact the quality of life of patients with acromegaly and NETs.
