23595952 Cortistatin emerges as a natural endogenous regulator of smooth muscle cells under pathological conditions and an attractive candidate for the pharmacological management of vascular diseases that course with neointimal lesion formation.
20398908 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
20164562 The cortistatin expression in the temporal lobe of Alzheimer's disease patients is decressed.
19086053 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18709137 A lower expression of CST exists in diabetic retinas and it is associated with retinal neurodegeneration.
18450367 Human immune cells produce CST, whereas macrophage lineage and activated endothelium express sst2, and human lymphocytes express sst3. The human thymus expresses sst1, 2, 3, MrgX2 and almost all immune cells express GHS-R. [review]
16043736 Intravitreous somatostatin-like immunoreactivity deficit occurs in ptients with proliferative diabetic retinopathy.
14669820 Cortistatin plays a role in the auto/paracrine regulation of the endocrine pancreas
12915402 cortistatin-14 shown to be a high affinity ligand for G protein coupled receptor MrgX2 which is expressed in dorsal root ganglion
12684217 study demonstrates for the first time a selective and inducible expression of the recently discovered cortistatin, as well as somatostatin receptor 2, in human monocyte-derived cells
