Editorial Reviews

"Since the discovery of somatostatin barely 30 years ago, the mechanism of action of this ubiquitous peptide has been rigorously investigated. This volume contains a comprehensive tour de force of advances in molecular, cellular, and physiologic aspects of somatostatin function and action, will be a useful resource for understanding current concepts of this hormone action, and also illuminates future directions for further investigation in this important area of peptide biology."
