25881116 Results suggest that DNA methylation may be a proximal mechanism for decreased expression of BDNF, SST, and other BDNF- and GABA-related genes with brain aging and, by extension, for brain disorders in which their expression is decreased
25734919 Aberrant methylation inactivates somatostatin and SSTR1 in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma.
25723531 In cancerous colonic mucosa promoter hypermethylation-related SST downregulation may contribute to the uncontrolled cell proliferation.
25406263 Somatostatin and insulin together are critical paracrine mediators of glucose-inhibited glucagon secretion and function by lowering cAMP/PKA signaling with increasing glucose.
25156131 The aim of the study was to provide knowledge on somatostatin and its action on the body, particularly the pancreas - in physiological and pathological conditions--{REVIEW}
24965867 Distribution of peptidergic populations in the human dentate gyrus (somatostatin [SOM-28, SOM-12] and neuropeptide Y [NPY]) during postnatal development.
24602981 No somatostatin promoter hypermethylation was detected in the Alzheimer neocortex.
24415445 Hemostatic effects and safety does not differ significantly between somatostatin and octreotide as adjuvants to endoscopic treatment in patients with acute gastroesophageal variceal bleeding.
