FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] 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. SSTR4 is a member of the superfamily of receptors having seven transmembrane segments and is expressed in highest levels in fetal and adult brain and lung. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Homozygote null mice have increased susceptibility to inflammation, delayed type hypersensitivity, hyperalgesia and airway hypersensitivity. [provided by MGI curators]
