SSTr5

Official Full Name
somatostatin receptor 5
Background
Somatostatin and its related peptide cortistatin exert multiple biological actions on normal and tumoral tissue targets by interacting with somatostatin receptors (SSTRs). The protein encoded by this gene is one of the SSTRs, which is a multi-pass membrane protein and belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family. The activity of this receptor is mediated by G proteins which inhibit adenylyl cyclase, and different regions of this receptor molecule are required for the activation of different signaling pathways. A mutation in this gene results in somatostatin analog resistance. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been identified in this gene.
Synonyms
SSTR5; somatostatin receptor 5; somatostatin receptor type 5; somatostatin receptor subtype 5; SS-5-R; SS5R; zgc:85682
