Antipeptide Antibodies which Recognize Specific Somatostatin Receptor Subtypes


Antipeptide Antibodies That Recognize Specific Somatostatin Receptor Subtypes

The Technology: This patent covers:
1. A method for developing somatostatin receptor subtype specific antibodies.
2. Antibodies developed using this method to identify somatostatin receptor subtypes belonging to the seven transmembrane domain receptor family.
3. The use of these antibodies, alone or in kit form, to identify somatostatin receptors in tissues or protein extracts.

The utility of the patented technology is founded upon its ability to selectively identify somatostatin receptor subtypes and thus will be of great value, but not limited to, the fields of diabetes, immunology, neurology and oncology.
