26474434 Data showed that the distribution of somatostatin receptor (SSTR) subtypes among the 199 pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETs) was: SSTR2 (54.8%), SSTR1 (53.3%), SSTR4 (51.8%), SSTR5 (33.7%), and SSTR3 (28.6%).
25962406 An immunohistochemical investigation of the expression of somatostatin receptor subtypes
25925002 SSTR2 and SSTR5 protein levels were induced as compared to any agent alone.
25854304 This is the first evidence indicating that sst5TMD4 is expressed in human medullary thyroid carcinoma cells, where it associates with more aggressive behavior, suggesting that sst5TMD4 might play a functionally relevant role.
25808161 Data indicate that somatostatin receptor scintigraphy (SRS) and immunohistochemical results for somatostatin and dopamine receptors sstr2, sstr3, sstr5 and D2R were compared in neuroendocrine neoplasms tissues.
25765179 Somatostatin receptors were expressed in a high proportion of merkel cell carcinomas, although expression was heterogeneous between tumours and was not associated with disease severity.
25637790 A truncated sst5-variant (sst5TMD4) can influence the secretory response of somatotropinomas to somatostatin analogues-therapy.
25008035 SSTR5 was the predominantly expressed receptor subtype in the cytoplasm of all GH-secreting adenomas tested, regardless of whether they came from octreotide-naive, octreotide-responsive, or octreotide-resistant patients. SSTR5 mRNA predominance was significant only in octreotide treated patients. Its expression was not correlated with baseline or post-octreotide GH or IGF-1 levels or tumor volume.
24967740 SSTR 5 was shown to be the main receptor subtype in the analysed differentiated or anaplastic thyroid malignancies, whereas SSTR 2 was found only in a small percentage.
24634938 Tumor cells in the tissue samples of the patients diagnosed with advanced-stage hepatocellular carcinoma expressed a high proportion of SSTR1 and SSTR5.
